How Privatization and Vocational Training in Higher Education Reinforce Social Stratification

Tuesday, Apr 2, 2013 7:00p

Professor Sheila Slaughter will discuss the rising emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and professional fields, and the disparities this has created between these disciplines and the humanities in research universities, including: salaries, research funding, investment, course loads, and student numbers. In raising these issues, Professor Slaughter will speak to the deprofessionalization of the humanities and how these trends may be changed.
