    anthropology and sociology of higher education, labour, inequalities

    I explore the complexities of higher education reforms in the neoliberal era: the ways in which universities service elite reproduction and/or inspire collective imaginaries for redistribution, innovation, and transformation. I discuss these through the lens of casualisation and automation of academic labour, the marketisation and digitalisation of university education, and the exacebration of intersectional inequalities in the university settings.
