Friday 14 October – Financialisation, Monetisation, Privatisation: Creating the New Market in HE

September 13, 2011

A talk by me on Friday 14 October at Senate House, London.

It’s for the Marxism in Culture group .

Under cover of austerity and deficit reduction, the government is engineering a new market in HE. How does a government accounting convention create a pricing mechanism? What new financial derivatives will mediate the sale of the student loan portfolio? Which legal forms will universities choose so as to better access private finance? Andrew McGettigan discusses the dark side of the recent white paper.

All seminars start at 5.30pm, and are held in the Wolfson Room (unless otherwise stated) at the Institute of Historical Research in Senate House, Malet St, London WC1E 7HU.
