An edition of the Novara radio show looking at the theme of the ‘graduate without a future’ with James Butler @piercepenniless and Aaron Peters @aaronjohnpeters. While broad-ranging the parameters of the discussion will include this piece by Paul Mason, economics editor of BBC Newsnight, and this response by Butler.
What does the future look like? Is there a future for the university and will it change? Has it changed? What is the relationship between education and the social democratic compromise now in free fall which permitted unprecedented numbers of people access to university and other social goods, and, the very category of the future itself? Will new political subjects, such as the graduate without a future, become political agents? In conclusion, to quote Butler, “now we know there’s no future, what are we going to do about it?”
