The university

About

To be financially viable, universities are seeking students from around the world and exporting their operations overseas. Are universities victims of globalisation, threatened by the flow of people, capital and digital information, or do they actively shape the forms that globalisation takes? Is there a global democracy of scholarship, or a corporatisation of ‘banks' of knowledge? Participants include: Jo Beall, Director of Education and Society at the British Council Stefan Collini, Professor of Intellectual History and English Literature at the University of Cambridge Pratap Bhanu Mehta, President of the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi Paul Webley, Director of SOAS, University of London David Willetts MP, UK Minister for Universities and Science Book via Tate: http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/talks-and-lectures/university
