After McDonaldization

A conference bringing together many well-known writers and academics will address a challenge set by George Ritzer: can we ‘re-enchant’ higher education?


The ‘McDonaldization’ of higher education is a reality. The industrial techniques of efficiency, calculability, predictability and control have transformed higher education into a bureaucratised institution in which creativity and new ideas are scarce. A conference bringing together many well-known writers and academics will address a challenge set by George Ritzer: can we ‘re-enchant’ higher education?

Speakers include: George Ritzer, Frank Furedi, Claire Fox + many others
