Abstract

Even though we grapple with different scientific questions, academics in different disciplines all face the same ongoing challenges with academic acceleration. Dr Milena Kremakova argues mathematics as a discipline is an excellent test case for understanding recent transformations in academia — and a cautionary tale for the social sciences and humanities. The main problem is that technocratic time of the neoliberal university is in a direct clash with the thinking time required to learn, and do, science. Something must be changed if we want good science and decent working conditions for knowledge workers.
