Tier Two Worker Remote Office: Resisting the Marketization of Higher Education
Denmead, Tyler
Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, v16 n1 p6-34 2019
In this paper, I present "Tier Two Worker Remote Office," a performance artwork that I produced on March 15-16, 2018 at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. For this performance, I set up an outdoor office between the building where I work and the picket line where I had been striking for three weeks. I worked outside in this "Remote Office" for two days while my colleagues continued to strike nearby. I created this performance because I, along with thousands of other workers involved in the strike, risked deportation if we continued to strike. Influenced by the artistic performances of American artist and education scholar, Jorge Lucero, "Tier Two Worker Remote Office" demonstrates how the university itself is a historical invention, always open to being reshaped. "Tier Two Worker Remote Office" illustrates how the arts can move academics beyond bemoaning the marketization of public higher education and serve as a useful tool in shaping our understanding that the marketized university is not inevitable, therefore can be resisted and changed.
