"The Crisis of Academic Labor, Part V: Structural Determinants and Organized
Responses to the New McCarthyism"
This workshop explores the economic and political grounds of the "New
McCarthyism" facing academia and taking the form of highly organized
campaigns against academic freedom by conservative think tanks and
philanthropies. Presentations are invited which analyze the systemic
structural determinants of these phenomena and their affects on film and
media studies, both in terms of institutional and ideological reaction and
critical response and resistance.
