This growing resource library is a work in progress. We are working to create an extensive list of resources including from media and from academic research.

We are regularly updating our library and are curating resources that are significant and relevant. The items are deliberately not posted in chronological order as they wont get outdated due to their significance. Take time and go through them all as this will help you to understand the university crisis. The resources are listed under “Media coverage” and  “Academic texts” sections. New items are posted on top of the sections.

Last update: 3.8. 2022 under “Academic texts: University Culture” (scroll down) or click here.
