"You might even say that at this historical moment, there are no 'careers' in the academy-- only struggle-- and activism is the modality of living with struggle…. Activism improves your work. Let's say you accept the principle that all study of past cultural practice is a contribution to the history of the present. And let's say that you also accept the testimony of your exhausted body that the present is a time of struggle for the profession."

-- Marc Bousquet, 1998, “The Institution as False Horizon,” Inaugural Issue of Workplace.
