“On Schoolwork and the Struggle Against It” is an article about the organisation of and resistance to the contemporary capitalist university by Harry Cleaver, a relatively well known autonomist Marxist and professor of economics at the University of Texas in Austin.
He wrote the essay as part of a response to the critique of his book Reading Capital Politically in the article “From operaismo to ‘autonomist Marxism’” in the 2002 edition of the British communist journal Aufheben.
Harry Cleaver has a website containing a large number of his interesting articles at:
