Beyond Hypermodern Militarized Knowledge Factories
Armitage, John
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v27 n3 p219-239 Jul 2005
This article is an intervention into and examination of hypermodern forms of militarization or what the author calls "hypermodern militarized knowledge factories," exemplified here by the increasingly militarized universities of North America. He specifies the important arguments of his intervention into the hypermodern militarization of higher education so as to offer a means of access into the debate and into related discussions for those not accustomed to them. He then considers and analyzes the implications of his investigation for contemporary society. He studies, in particular, how the knowledge bases, social lives, and mentalities of faculty, students, and other concerned civilians are understood by such these hypermodern militarized knowledge factories. In order to appreciate these institutions, he begins by examining the concepts of intervention, hypermodernity, militarization, and the hypermodern militarized knowledge factory. (Contains 2 figures.)
