[Nettime-nl] Middlesex University (UK) ontdoet zich van zijn filosofie faculteit

Het managerialistisch surrealisme dendert vrolijk verder in academia!


Cheerio, p+3D!

(Sorry voor het Engels maar Menno vertaalt het anders graag voor u! ;-)

> context:
> Late on Monday 26 April, the Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities, Ed
> Esche, informed staff in Philosophy that the University executive had
> ?accepted his recommendation? to close all Philosophy programmes:
> undergraduate, postgraduate and MPhil/PhD.
> The Dean explained that the decision to terminate recruitment and close the
> programmes was ?simply financial?, and based on the fact that the
> University
> believes that it may be able to generate more revenue if it shifts its
> resources to other subjects ? from ?Band D? to ?Band C? students.
> In a meeting with Philosophy staff, the Dean acknowledged the excellent
> research reputation of Philosophy at Middlesex, but said that it made no
> ?measurable? contribution to the University.
> Please sign the petition!
> cheers, patrizio & Diiiinooos!
