New in paperback Annette Kolodny's Failing the Future is drawn from the author's experience as a distinguished teacher, a prize-winning scholar of American literature, a feminist thinker, and an innovative administrator at a major public university. Offering a sobering view of what may lie ahead, Kolodny explains the reasons for the financial crisis in higher education today and boldly addresses the challenges that remain ignored, including changing demographics both on campus and across the country and the accelerating globalisation of higher education and advanced research. Failing the Future is rich with practical solutions and workable programs for change. Among her many insights Kolodny offers a thorough defence of the role of tenure and outlines a new set of procedures to ensure its effective implementation. She proposes a structure for an "Antifeminist Intellectual Harassment Policy" and provides a checklist of family-sensitive policies universities can offer their staff, faculty, and administrators. Failing the Future provides valuable, no-nonsense knowledge for all those concerned with the future of higher education in this country--from college trustees to graduate students entering the professoriate, from faculty to university administrators, from officers of campus-based unions to education policymakers.
