Nonstop’s “Education and Public Intellectual Practice” Reading Group begins meeting on an alternating week basis to discuss current scholarship and discourse concerning the state of higher education. The group aims to explore higher education’s prospects as a meaningful alternative social, cultural, and creative space in a time of corporatist orthodoxy’s assertion of narrowing expectations.
