We are looking for contributing editors sympathetic to the blog who can offer a critical perspective on a number of themes, some of which are listed below (the list is not exhaustive).

Eventually, we would like to edit the contributions into a critical encyclopedia to be of use to activists, and to this end we would like contributions to be accessible at the same time as in-depth, and ideally no longer than 2,500 words. All contributions always will be credited and open-access.

If you would like to contribute, or would like to become a co-editor, please enter your email higheredmarketisation at gmail with your name, email, affiliation (if any) and a short description of what you would like to contribute
