The Quest for Requirement Fulfilment: the case of the Fabrication of the Technologized Academic Subject in a Mexican Public State University | Carlos MONTANO, Yolanda ANGULO PARRA, Carmen ALVAREZ & Aida REYES ESCALANTE
Abstract: How is Academic Practice shaped in today’s Universities? How is the Academic governed in order to produce or “fabricate” a controlled and technologized productive subject? Using Foucauldian categories the paper explores the literature produced within and outside a specific institutional “dispositive”: a Mexican Public University. This Foucauldian perspective will be the framework to discuss how ‘subjectification procedures’ evidenced in literature are being related to technologies for control. The ultimate purpose is to describe how such processes have impacted academic practice “fabrication” in this particular university and the intrinsic dangers for the university as system and for academic freedom.
Keywords: Academic Practice, Subjectivity, Academic Government, Technologized Subjects, Foucauldian Studies, Mexican Public Universities.
