Critical University Studies (CUS) is a term which has recently come out of discussions between Carnegie-Mellon literary theorists Jeffrey J. Williams and Heather Steffen. Many of us have already been engaged with CUS, at least according to the manner in which it is described in the article linked above. Having enjoyed reading the article a couple of times, I have 2 connections between CUS and other areas which I’d encourage everyone to consider.
1) To the specificities of the University based Business School (in light of Khurana, Ghoshal, Locke and Spender, The Rigour/Relevance Debate, Against Management, Critical Management Studies, ABS List, Global Campuses, Distance Learning, etc.)
2) To the current University reforms within the UK (the Fees Debacle [see especially the recent Martin McQuillan documentary, REF 2014 and after, impact based assessment of the university, etc.)
Any insights in this regard would be hugely appreciated.
