Urban Universities Take the City (pt. 2)
Play • 49 min

When does a university cease to serve a public good? What would it look like for universities to work toward justice and solidarity with the cities they call home? In the second episode of this two-part series, historian and critic Davarian Baldwin gives us more tools for understanding the dynamics of race and capital structuring urban higher education in the United States--from campus police forces, to university medical complexes, to the low-wage labor on which they depend. We then turn to the community movements and pedagogical interventions that are envisioning, and enacting, alternative visions of city learning and urban life.
