I have just had an article published in the new edition of La Deleuziana, entitled 'Stupidity and Study in the Contemporary University.'
In the paper, I consider the concepts of "stupidity" (with Deleuze and Stiegler) and "study" (with Harney and Moten) in relation to the contemporary university. I argue that the university functions within, and perpetuates, systemic stupidity through corporatised management structures and regimes of governance of research and teaching. Further, I consider some projects of study which might be developed in the university-to-come in order to escape such systemic stupidity.
The full reference is as-follows:
