Czy uniwersytet stał się naddatkiem względem wymagań? Albo: czy inny uniwersytet jest możliwy?

W tym artykule dowodzimy, że Uniwersytet stał się miejscem, które nie ma społecznie użytecznej roli poza reprodukcją kapitału, i przemienia się wobec tego w projekt antyludzki. Wywód ten skoncentrowany jest na pragnieniu nadwyżki biurokratycznego uniwersytetu i jego związku z codzienną, akademicką rzeczywistością – odczuwania nadwyżki w stosunku do wymagań. Kreśląc kontury tej sprzeczności, w ramach normalizacji kryzysu polityczno-gospodarczego, kwestionujemy to, czy nadal istnieje miejsce na akademicką metodę lub sposób upodmiotowienia. Krytykujemy również zdolność Uniwersytetu z globalnej Północy do nawiązania relacji z epistemologiczną wrażliwością Południa i Wschodu, które traktują inne sposoby widzenia i praxis z godnością i szacunkiem. Zmagając się z ideą nadwyżki oraz z codziennymi i strukturalnymi sposobami manifestowania się jej produkcji, pytamy, czy możliwy jest inny uniwersytet.
