Defending the Commons in the Privatized Public University - NASCO Institute

Session materials from “Defending the Commons in the Privatized Public University,” presented by Kat Perkins and Kaitlin Oki at NASCO Institute 2016.


What if the economy wasn't a green-eyed, money-grabbing monster but the outcome of the decisions we make and the actions we take? What if changing the ways we talk about economy could transform us from hostages into agents of change? Drawing on inspiration from decades of resistance against privatization at the University of California Davis as well as the work of feminist economic geographers J.K. Gibson-Graham, this session will create a space for co-opers to become co-conspirators in reclaiming the commons.
