EduFactory! Disassembling the neoliberal university
When? September 29 - October 1
Where? Australian National University, Canberra
EduFactory! is a conference for all students who reject the ongoing integration of universities into the market, the undermining of student autonomy and the erosion of essential services such as housing.
Consisting of three days of self-education, criticism and organisation it intends to bring together anyone who seeks a way out of the present crisis in university education.
But the objective of EduFactory! is not only to critique the university's political-economy; it also seeks to explore the able-bodied, gendered, and racial nature of the institution. Faced with these multifaceted and interrelated issues in the university system, we are calling on students from far and wide to converge in Canberra and build a strong student movement on the firm foundations of grassroots democratic organising.
