Editorial Reviews


Spanning both media and textual practices, Imaging the Academy offers fresh readings of the representation of higher education in popular culture. The collection contains unexpected insights into tense relations between seemingly opposing pedagogical and institutional forms, from accelerated marketing of the academic business to the assumed professional formation of the university scholar-teacher.

–William F. Pinar, St. Bernard Parish Alumni Endowed Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Louisiana State University
