Richard Hil - Academic Anger

From Sunday Morning, 11:13 am on 14 April 2013

Richard Hil has written about pressure on universities to make money and the effect that has on academics and teaching. He talks to Chris about the long-running industrial strife at Sydney University, the casualisation of the workforce at universities throughout Australia, which he calls an outrageous exploitation of labour, and the need for academic staff to stand up for their colleagues. Whackademia, An Insider's Account of the Troubled University, by Richard Hil, is published by NewSouth Publishing.
