On this episode, we are joined by listener and philosophy student Rique to discuss his academic experience. We follow Rique through his intellectual and personal development as a student of philosophy. He discusses the importance of the relationships he’s developed with faculty and the process of applying to graduate programs. Also on the docket for this discussion are student life in philosophy and the changing nature of education under contemporary neoliberalism. How can this pressure create a form of solidarity between students and educators? What are some ways to counter the forces of “specialization”? What are some strategies to reduce this stress? How can pedagogy itself become an element in resistance? So, consider pushing aside the notebook or statement of intent for a bit and tuning into this conversation!
