Reclaiming the radical power of knowledge from capitalist education.

Scholar Eli Meyerhoff examines the realities of education under the capitalist university - as a means of social control and a reification agent - and explains why reclaiming the potential, and power, of knowledge won't happen by looking backward to education of the past, but forwards, with a radically democratic, abolitionist frame.

Eli is author of Beyond Education: Radical Studying for Another World from University of Minnesota Press.
