An article written by Patrick Lynn Rivers, Afield Co-Director, will be republished in a forthcoming Routledge volume titled HUMANITIES RELOADED: ADDRESSING CRISIS (28 Feb 2023) edited by Keyan G. Tomaselli and Pier Paolo Frassinelli. The republished article originally appeared in the cultural studies journal CRITICAL ARTS: A JOURNAL OF SOUTH-NORTH CULTURAL STUDIES in 2010. The article is titled: 'Academic Managerialism in the Art and Design School.' Rivers used the article to pointedly analyse how neoliberal budgeting rationales have impacted dissent in art and design schools in the United States particularly after the 2008 'Financial Meltdown.' Other contributors to the volume include Stuart Hall, Njabulo S. Ndebele, and Shi-xu.
