Christopher Newfield: “After the Great Mistake: Fixing Public Universities in the Trump Administration”

February 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free

Christopher Newfield’s (Professor of literature and American studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara) new book, “The Great Mistake,“ shows how privatization has weakened the educational quality and the budgetary stability of public universities and wrecked their true public mission. But how can they recover during an administration that promises to accelerate privatization in every arena? Newfield argues that universities should use this period to rebuild their public purpose from the ground up, with special attention to the non-college voters that allegedly turned the election towards Donald J. Trump.

Co-Sponsored by the Center for Cultural Studies and the Santa Cruz Faculty Association.
