Clint Wilson: "The Ersatz Humanities; or, a Eulogy for Close Reading.”

Clint Wilson brilliantly explained the nefarious influence of neoliberal technocratic thinking on the discipline of English and its recent drift toward corporatism (fed by faculty and adminstrators alike). This photograph shows only one of the many inventive slides Clint used to lay bare and undo the instrumentalist logics circulating within the neoliberal university today. He paid particularly close attention to how these logics redouble at the level of syllabi, teaching, faculty research, and funding decisions.
