"[The editors] frame this anthology with relevant questions about the time we're in: How do we teach, and think about teaching, when in certain quarters post-secondary education is understood as a consumer item? [The} anthology emerges at an important time as we in Alberta grapple with COVID-19, severe budget cuts from the provincial government and the need for clear critical thinking."

Joe Kadi, Alberta Views, September 2021

"This is an important book, both for those of us who love and teach humanities and for those skeptical about the value of the humanities."

Marjean D. Purinton, Professor, Texas Tech University


"Corporatization poses a serious threat to the academic and scholarly integrity of our universities. The authors promote a dialogue about the problem and how it should be addressed."

Joseph Keeping, Associate Professor, York University
