Knowledge, Violence, Discipline: (Re)Thinking Politics + the University

We seek submissions that both implicitly and explicitly engage these issues. 
Topics to consider include:

. How does violence invest knowledge-production, and what are the 
(unintended) productivities of this relation?
. What is at stake in the contemporary 'redisciplinarization' of and 
'tokenization' within the university?
. How do we understand/combat the instrumentalization and militarization of 
knowledge in the context of an increasingly 'entrepreneurial' academy?
. What are the contemporary possibilities of forming inter-, intra-, and 
para-institutional collectivities, or of political engagements that reside 
in but transcend the space of the University? How do these current 
possibilities relate to many legacies of resisting violence and transforming 
not just the academy but the social at large?
