EVENT: Debt and the Public University

***What happens in America does not stay in America; or, US-style student debt – coming to a banker’s screen near you***

11 June,  1600-1730 in IMC 0.02

This roundtable will highlight the significance of debt in reshaping the priorities and direction of higher education. Reflecting on differences and continuities between the UK and US sectors, IAS Visiting Fellow Joshua Clover will discuss his experience organizing resistance to student debt-loads in California and examine the case for loan default as a principal tactic in the broader struggle against a neoliberal regime of debt discipline. The event will be podcast; all are welcome.
