In part three of our Re-envisioning Scholarship series, join us for a conversation about what it means to prioritize community and care in academic environments that emphasize high productivity. We will host a discussion based on the article, “For Slow Scholarship: A Feminist Politics of Resistance through Collective Action in the Neoliberal University” (Mountz et al 2015). The pressure to publish quickly and in large quantity in academia is exacerbated by the corporatized university model, which often pulls us thin in innumerable ways. In this discussion, we will think through the need for a “slow scholarship” informed by a feminist ethics of care, which can center new ways of labor organizing, alternative modes of scholarship, and communally nurturing spaces.
