Mass Intellectuality? An ICLS Annual Conference
Long viewed as an engine of sociality mobility, the university is in crisis. Our day-long convening will inaugurate ongoing reflection on themes regarding the university as infrastructure and ideological apparatus including: the history of the disciplines, infrastructural histories of the university, dissent that have emerged from within and in opposition to the university, global histories of the university in relation to anticolonial activism and postcolonial state formation, the role of academic labor in histories of labor and organizing, and the complex investments in mass intellectuality and education for subaltern communities.
This event is part of Mass Intellectuality? An Annual Conference of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University. For details on other events in this conference series, please visit: https://icls.columbia.edu/news/mass-intellectuality-icls-annual-conference-2022/.
