Does "marketisation" threaten to destroy what we most value about education; does this new era of "accountability" distort what it purports to measure; and who does the modern university "belong to"?

Join historian and critic Stefan Collini at Heffers as he talks about his book 'Speaking of Universities', giving his response to recent policy changes and their underlying ideology, and calling us to "focus on what is actually happening and the cliches behind which it hides; an incitement to think again, think more clearly, and then to press for something better".

Tickets for the event are priced at £5 and can be purchased through https://speakingofuniversities.eventbrite.co.uk, by calling 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers bookshop
