Julia Wright on “Professionalism, Citizenship, and the Problem of University Governance”

In the expanded version of a paper given at the 2012 ACCUTE conference, in a panel organized by the Committee for Professional Concerns, Julia Wright (Dalhousie) considers the “problem of governance” in the contemporary research university.   She writes: “Universities need an idea of academic citizenship that will … energize the collective ethical and rigorous scrutiny of the operations of the university as a whole and within society… [It is time to pick up political models that are …. participatory and structurally open to debate and scrutiny.”
