Slow Scholarship – Medieval Research and the Neoliberal University (Essays and Studies)De (autor) Catherine E. Karkov
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 30 Aug 2019
The essays collected here both critique the culture of speed in the neoliberal university and provide examples of what can be achieved by slowing down, by reclaiming research and research priorities, and by working collaboratively across the disciplines to improve conditions. They are informed both by recent research in medieval studies and by the problematic culture of twenty-first century higher education.
The contributions offer very personal approaches to the academic culture of the present moment. Some tackle issues of academic freedom head-on; others more obliquely; but they all have been written as declarations of the academic freedom that comes with slow thinking, slow reading, slow writing and slow looking and the demonstrations of its benefits.
