My current research began with an interest in the role of technology in higher education. It now extends more broadly to a critique of the political economy of higher education. As such, my writing and teaching is now focused on the history and political economy of science and technology in higher education, its affordances for and impact on academic labour, and the way by which academics can control the means of knowledge production through co-operative and ultimately post-capitalist forms of work and democracy. This work contributes to a number of contemporary themes in higher education, such as open education, academic identity, value critique, and alternative education.
