EdSurge Live: A Town-Hall Style Video Forum

Each month, EdSurge hosts an online forum about a big question facing higher education. And you're invited to share your questions and perspectives.


Coming up next:

How Market Forces Shape Faculty Life

Professors have long savored their position outside of commercial systems. But these days, there’s plenty of signs of capitalism within the academy, as scholars seek support from funders hoping the findings will lead to commercial applications, departments market their courses to students as pathways to lucrative careers and universities replace tenure-track positions with adjunct jobs to cut costs.

In these ways and more, managing the modern academic career is like running a small business, posits Eli Thorkelson, research fellow of social anthropology at Stellenbosch University.

When: Tuesday, November 19, 1pm PT/4pm ET
