The University as Public Sphere | Ambrozas | Canadian Journal of Communication

There is a certain parallel between arguments about the decline of the public sphere and the decline of the university today. Both institutions are said to be increasingly fragmented and politicized. In this paper, I mobilize Nancy Fraser’s alternative account of the public in order to defend contemporary political changes in the university, such as affirmative action or women’s studies programs. Such changes are necessary to transform an elite institution into a more democratic one and, in addition, they broaden the scope of our knowledge.
