Debt, Democracy, and the Public University

The Editorial Boards of qui parle, Representations, and Reclamations, publications housed at the University of California, Berkeley, will be co-hosting a panel discussion on December 7th to celebrate the release of their latest issues, which take the current educational crisis as their point of departure. Please join us for a panel discussion and open forum on student debt, democracy, and the future of the public university. The event is being held in the Maude Fife Room, Wheeler Hall 315, at the UC Berkeley campus, from 4 to 6pm.

Featured speakers include:

Lyn Hejinian
Robert Meister

The brief panel talks will serve as prompts for a broader, open discussion surrounding education and its relationship to the socio-political movements we are witnessing presently across many cities and campuses.
