"What purpose should the university serve? What are the true callings of academics? In Academic Callings, prominent Canadian scholars tackle these big questions and provide a timely survey of the state of the Canadian university. With so much current interest in the university's role in the economy, and so much emphasis on research tied to funding opportunities, this volume seeks to revive the idea of the university as it has been and could be again: a democratic institution committed to advancing critical thought.

About the Author:

Janice Newson is Professor Emerita in the Department of Sociology at York University. Claire Polster is Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Social Studies at the University of Regina.

Review:

Editors Janice Newson and Claire Polster have achieved a rare and delicate balance in their editorial direction, where personal narratives, rather than breaking up or obscuring the larger picture, speak to the complexity,the tensions, and the shifting ideals extant in the Canadian university." - Canadian Journal of Communications
