The Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective invites a dialogue on issues in higher education involving the audit culture, authoritarianism, neoliberalism, and technocracy. These issues are addressed in a special issue of Social Epistemology (33 (4): 2019), “Neoliberalism, Technocracy and Higher Education,” edited by Justin Cruickshank and Ross Abbinnett (https://bit.ly/2OBNhWV). If you want to reply to any combination of an article or articles in the special issue, or to Cruickshank’s “The Feudal University in the Age of Gaming the System,” or to add your thoughts on relevant issues, we ask for pieces of 1000- to 2000- words with streamlined scholarly apparatus. In the spirit of equitable exchange, we will encourage participants to respond to one another’s work. The SERRC will host the dialogue. The dialogue will be integrated into an article or series of articles and, if desired, may serve as a basis for a book in the “Collective Studies in Knowledge and Society” series (Rowman & Littlefield International). If you are interested in participating, please contact Jim Collier—jim.collier@vt.edu—by 2 September 2019. (If access to Social Epistemology poses a problem, please inform Collier.)
