Warwick University Ltd, forty plus years on conference – video available

WarwickThe conference to mark the re-publication of the book Warwick University Ltd was held last Friday in the Arts Centre.

It was a unique event with speakers who were students involved in the sit-in and the discovery of the secret files and members of staff who supported them. In the afternoon speakers discussed some of the key aspects of higher education today, the MacUniversity, restrictions on the right to protest, and privatisation and marketisation of universities,  showing how prescient the words of E.P.Thompson had been.

We have uploaded a video of the entire conference that can be accessed from the website: https://www.warwickucu.org.uk/node/20
