For Education (1).png

 

Explication is the annihilation of one mind by another…Whoever teaches without emancipating, stultifies.
—Jacques Rancière, The Ignorant Schoolmaster

Change life! Change society! These precepts mean nothing without the production of an appropriate space…New social relationships call for a new space, and vice versa. —Henri Lefebvre, The Production of Space

 

If we assume the capture of the American university by the “national economic dogma,” as Nietzsche called education in the service of money-making careerism, what concrete actions might a change-minded instructor take? This is the question driving For Education.
