Liquid Surveillance in the Marketized University

  • Ellie Fawcett

Abstract

The neoliberal project to marketize higher education (HE) has resulted in the implementation and normalisation of surveillance technologies within the university (Williamson, 2018). Alongside this, there is a crisis of mental illness amongst students. In neoliberal society, there is a tendency to solve public issues with private solutions (Fisher, 2011). The private company, Solutionpath, posits their learning analytic platform as a resolution to the problem of student mental illness (Gascoigne, 2019).
