The WISER Podcast | Season 2 | Episode 6 by Sarah Nuttall

Friday, 9 October, 2020 (All day)

IEpisode 6 of Season 2 of The WISER PodcastSarah Nuttall discusses her thoughts on the “redistributed university”. Using Covid-19 as a point of departure, she considers new and older challenges that have contributed to redefining institutions of higher learning. As the university constantly reconfigures itself in response to multiple pressures and struggles, including economic pressures, struggles for social justice and rapid technological change, she asks - concretely and speculatively - how we might approach the institution in its present and historical formation.  

The WISER Podcast is also available on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
