Dear Colleagues,

In preparation for an upcoming special issue of Anthropology News, on the 
"Political Economy of Academia," I'm preparing a top ten list of ways to 
"battle against the neoliberalization of university life."

Here are a few examples I thought of, upon initial reflection:

* Invite adjunct and part-time faculty to departmental meetings.
* Don't require standardized testing for student admissions.
* Use course packets or next-to-last edition textbooks, which students may 
purchase for $10 (rather than $120).

I'd like to make this a collective list, as I am sure that you also have 
some excellent ideas.  What practical steps might we to take, to make 
our departments more about people, and less about budgets?

Please email your ideas, by 11/19/07, to: jancius at ohio.edu.

Thank you in advance!
