Canadian post-secondary education, the literary scholars who contributed these essays address the challenges that an intensified culture of research capitalism brings to the humanities in particular. Stakeholders in Canada's research infrastructure - university students, professors, and administrators; grant policy makers and bureaucrats; and, the public who are the ultimate inheritors of such knowledge - are urged to examine a range of perspectives on the increasingly entrepreneurial university environment and its growing corporate culture. It includes essays by: L M Findlay; Donna Palmateer Pennee; Kit Dobson; Jessica Schagerl; Ashok Mathur and Rita Wong; Marjorie Stone; Paul Danyluk; Melissa Stephens; Susan Brown; Diana Brydon; and, Daniel Coleman and Smaro Kamboureli.
