Welcome to our blog (^_^) This is the place to come for all information and updates regarding EduFactory! We will also be posting some suggested readings in preparation for workshops, and a bunch of other material that will get you all excited for the conference.
In case you’re wondering why this website exists:
EduFactory! is a conference being held in Canberra at the Australian National University between July 12-15, 2012
It will consist of three days of radical self-education, criticism and organisation intended to bring together students who seek a way out of the present crisis in university education. All are welcome who reject the ongoing integration of universities into the market, the undermining of student autonomy and the erosion of essential services such as housing.
Faced with multifaceted interrelated crises in the university system, we are calling on students from far and wide to converge at the home of the Australian political elite and build a strong student movement on the firm foundations of grassroots democratic organising.
