Jobless Higher Ed: Revisited, An Interview with Stanley Aronowitz

  • Stanley Aronowitz CUNY Graduate Center
  • Karen Lynn Gregory University of Edinburgh


In February 2015 Karen Gregory sat down with Stanley Aronowitz, Distinguished Professor in the PhD program in sociology at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center and Director of the Center for the Study of Culture, Technology, and Work, to discuss the future of labor in higher education. In 1998, Professor Aronowitz spoke with Andrew Long for an interview titled “Jobless Higher Ed,” which ran in Workplace: A Journal for Academic Labor. As editors of this special edition of Workplace, we thought we would speak with Professor Aronowitz in order to gain a sense of how the terrain of labor in higher education has (or has not) shifted since the late 1990s.
