A Counter-Conference: Strategies for Defending Higher Education

The 2011 MLA Counter-Conference took place during the annual Modern Language Convention in Los Angeles, January 8th, 2011 at Loyola Law School.  While thousands of people were meeting at the traditional convention, this one-day event centered on discussing actual strategies for making higher education more just.  Speakers presented short papers on the death of tenure, the corporatization of the university, the possibilities of unionization, direct social action, the use and abuse of graduate students, organizing contingent faculty, and taking back shared governance.

    Apologies for the blackout – the laptop was re-purposed. We’ll be posting the video from the conference over the next week in any case.
