Draft on Academia.edu

This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the neoliberal production of anxiety in academic faculty members in universities in Northern Europe. The paper focuses on neoliberalization as it is instantiated through audit and ranking systems designed to produce academia as a space of economic efficiency and intensifying competition. We suggest that powerful forms of competition and ranking of academic performance have been developed in Northern Europe. These systems are differentiated and differentiating, and they serve to both index and facilitate the neoliberalization of the academy. Moreover, these audit and ranking systems produce an ongoing sense of anxiety among academic workers. We argue that neoliberalism in the academy is part of a wider system of anxiety production arising as part of the so-called ‘soft governance’ of everything, including life itself, in contemporary late liberalism.

Neoliberalism, Higher Education, Human Capital, Academic Audit Systems, Anxiety and Mental Health

Key Messages:
This article investigates processes of neoliberalization of the academy. It argues that neoliberalism entails shifts from exchange to competition, from equality to inequality, and turns academics into human capital. It suggests that auditing systems are key mechanisms of neoliberalization and produce unhealthy levels of anxiety and stress in the academy

Foucault 8/13 | Richard R.W. Brooks on Foucault’s “The Birth of Biopolitics” (1979)
By Richard R. W. Brooks

My comments on Foucault’s The Birth of Biopolitics will focus on the distinctions he observes (in discussing neoliberalism) between abstract economic and legal subjects (subject of interests and subject of rights) and actual individuals in concrete interactions of civil society. Interestingly, a number of the features and fractures that Foucault identifies between the German ordo-liberalism and the American (Chicago School) neo-liberalism, surfaced earlier in the U.S. context between advocates of the marginalist revolution in economics and their counterparts among progressive institutional economists (themselves, to a non-trivial extent, influenced by the German historical tradition) at the turn of the nineteenth century. I hope to usefully relate this marginalist-institutionalist debate to Foucault’s insightful analysis of economic subjects as developed by the Chicago School, significantly in the Journal of Political Economy, and particularly through Gary Becker’s theories on human capital and criminality.

Lars Thorup Larsen & Deborah Stone (2015): “Governing Health Care through Free Choice: Neoliberal Reforms in Denmark and the United States”, Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law 40(5): 941-70.

doi: 10.1215/03616878-3161162

We compare free choice reforms in Denmark and the United States to understand what ideas and political forces could generate such similar policy reforms in radically different political contexts. We analyze the two cases using our own interpretation of neoliberalism as having “two faces.” The first face seeks to expand private markets and shrink the public sector; the second face seeks to strengthen the public sector’s capacity to govern through incentives and competition. First, we show why these two most-different cases offer a useful comparison to understand similar policy tools. Second, we develop our theoretical framework of the two faces of neoliberalism. Third, we examine Denmark’s introduction of a free choice of hospitals in 2002, a policy that for the first time allowed some patients to receive care either in a public hospital outside their local area or in a private hospital. Fourth, we examine the introduction of free choice among private managed care plans into the US Medicare program in 1997. We show how policy makers in both countries used neoliberal reform as a mechanism to make their public health care sectors governable. Fifth, on the basis of our analysis, we draw five lessons about neoliberal policy reforms.

Planting Foucault in Juárez. A Translator’s Reflections on the Story of Two Teenage Murderers Separated by Almost Two Centuries by John Washington

“He donned his holiday clothes, had his sister sing a canticle beginning ‘O happy day! holy joy!” and, his mind wholly deranged, his weapon, an ax, in hand, he executed his mother, his sister, and his young brother.”

So one Dr. Vastel describes Pierre Rivière’s parricide-fratricide of June 3, 1835 in the rural French village of Faucterie. The description comes from the book, edited by Michel Foucault, I, Pierre Rivière, Having Slaughtered My Mother, My Sister, and My Brother. The astonishing volume includes the seventy-page memoir (“of remarkable eloquence,” according to presiding judge M. Daigrement) written by the nineteen-year-old murderer, Pierre, in which he candidly describes the particulars of his difficult family life and the details before, during, and after he murders his mother, his sister, and his brother, in that order.
