The Imperial University: Academic Repression and Scholarly Dissent

The Imperial University: Academic Repression and Scholarly Dissent – edited by Piya Chatterjee and Sunaina Maira and published by University of Minnesota Press.


From the front lines of the war on academic freedom, linking the policing of knowledge to the relationship between universities, militarism, and neoliberalism

The Imperial University brings together scholars to explore the policing of knowledge by explicitly linking the academy to the broader politics of militarism, racism, nationalism, and neoliberalism that define the contemporary imperial state. Based on multidisciplinary research, autobiographical accounts, and even performance scripts, this urgent analysis offers sobering insights into varied manifestations of “the imperial university.”
