(p.139) Chapter six The Corporate University
Corporate Sovereignty

Joshua Barkan

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the potential of the corporate university, which stands as the subjugation of reason to the dictates of neoliberal ideology and global markets. It exposes the “corporateness” that resides within the university as an institution and within intellectual inquiry, and provides a genealogical approach to corporate university as a modest response to contemporary problems. The chapter concludes with a review of the structural transformations referred to as the corporatization of the university, and the difference between legal liability and political responsibility through the works of Iris Marion Young and Hannah Arendt.

Keywords:   corporate university, neoliberal ideology, global markets, corporateness, corporatization of the university, legal liability, political responsibility, Iris Marion Young, Hannah Arendt
