Nomophilia and Academic Work in the Austerity University

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A key critique made by Professor Biko Agozino across the body of his work is that the discipline of criminology and its key producers have an intimate connection to the historical and contemporary dynamics of colonial force. During the course of Agozino’s visit to Australia many heated discussions were had about the significance, status and necessity for critical and activist scholarship to work within and push against the domination logics of conventional criminological knowledge production. This paper seeks to bring (perhaps
too many) themes into dialogue to begin to think through the possibilities for decolonial and critical scholarship in the neo-liberal, austerity university where nomophilia is rife- from the federal legislative level empowering university management strategies but also, somewhat paradoxically, at the level of resistance to those institutional moves.
