Max Haiven is a cultural theorist, social critic, as well as a teacher, writer, activist. Job-wise, he is an Assistant Professor in Division of Art History and Critical Studies at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Amongst his current projects is something called Edufactory , “a transnational collective engaged in the transformations of the global university and conflicts in knowledge production.”
In light of his involvement in Edufactory, I contacted Max for some comments aimed at a discussion on some of the broader dynamics at play in which the present job action at UNB appears to be looming , getting at the present nature of universities themselves.
