The Toxic University: zombie leadership, academic rock stars and neoliberal ideology

Samantha Schulz, Bev Rogers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In reviewing John Smyth’s latest offering – The Toxic University, we found a personal connection to the arguments put by Smyth as he critiques the neoliberalisation of higher education and our complicity as well as an agency in this process. As intellectuals whose university is undergoing aggressive neoliberal change, we valued the opportunity to examine Smyth’s work and its parallels with lived reality.
