The NYU Strike as Case Study
Keywords: academic labor action
AbstractThe 2005-2006 strike at New York University elicited strong emotions. Confrontations among peers, hostilities within departments, and divisions between intellectual allies created tension, anger, and deep dismay for many graduate students, professors, undergraduates, deans and administrators. Can asking scholarly questions about last year's strike assist in reestablishing the intellectual bonds that unite the various members of academic communities? Can asking questions about the strike make future labor conflicts more transparent for parties on all sides?
