Lezing: the university as a commons

What is a university for? What can a society expect from its universities? Willem Hallfmann will argue that a university is best seen as an organic, growing, digesting archive of knowledge and that this archive can best be organized as a commons. The presentation will be followed by a discussion about the current protests, in particular the role of H.NU (Hervorming Nederlandse Universiteiten - movement for the reform of Dutch universities)

The lecture will be in English
