Power, in Case's world, meant corporate power. The zaibatsus, the multinationals that shape the course of human history, had transcended old barriers. Viewed as organisms, they had attained a kind of immortality. You couldn't kill a zaibatsu by assassinating a dozen key executives; there were others waiting to step up the ladder, assume the vacated position, access the vast banks of corporate memory. —William Gibson, Neuromancer (1984)

Contemporary book clubs are an ubiquitous socio-cultural phenomenon worldwide, having evolved from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century salons and literary societies. There is currently a growing body of scholarship on these groups, including but not limited to work by Cecelia Farr and Jaime Harker's The Oprah Affect: Critical Essays on Oprah's Book Club, Elizabeth Long's Book Clubs: Women and the Uses of Reading in Everyday Life, and Heather Murray's Come, bright improvement!: The Literary Societies of Nineteenth-Century Ontario.

With the increased prominence of movements like the New Faculty Majority and the MLA Subconference, along with the sensational cases of Margaret Mary Vojtko and Mary-Faith Cerasoli, criticism on the social, political, and economic factors which shape the processes of higher education has emerged as an urgent and vital component of the contemporary humanities. A growing body of scholarship has placed labour issues, student debt, the job market, education funding, and resource allocation among the fundamental elements which condition the production and distribution of knowledge in not just the humanities, but the university as a whole. This seminar seeks to contribute to this field by considering a number of questions:
