BB: Dimitra Mareta - The Neoliberal Transformation of Higher Education in Greece
Attempts to impose neoliberalism are not new and have not failed in Greece. The history of the more than 20 last years has been a history of such attempts, of their success and of the resistance against them. Reforming higher education according to the neoliberal dogma has always been a high priority. In this lecture the focus will be on the current and on-going attempt with a special emphasis on the way this attempt meets the neoliberal vision challenging equality, inclusion and academic freedom.
Dimitra Mareta holds a PhD in Political Science from the Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences. She currently teaches at Political Science at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where she is also a post-doc researcher and she was a Visiting Research Fellow in Political Science at the University of Peloponnese for the academic year 2018-2019. Her research and teaching interests include state theory and theory of sovereignty, counterrevolution, Greek politics, right-wing politics, liberalism and neoliberalism. She has published academic articles on state, sovereignty and liberalism and has participated in national and international conferences.
