Space is running out for the first annual Worldviews Lecture on Media and Higher Education. This free event will look at how universities fit into a world increasingly divided between the rich and everyone else.
The first lecture will feature Simon Marginson, Professor of International Education at the Institute of Education, University of London. Professor Marginson will deliver a lecture titled, “Universities, the plutocracy and the 99%: Is high participation in higher education the problem or the solution, in societies that are becoming more unequal?”
The lecture will take place on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m in the Ground Floor of the OISE Library, University of Toronto.
