Notes on the Academy is a magazine that aims to critically evaluate academic institutions and culture. Our efforts are directed at making the larger community admit that these problems are not one-off cases but are systemic. We hope that our efforts spark a conversation among your circles about how higher educational institutions may be re-imagined, and how we, as a community, might work to cure academia of its illnesses.
As we see it, our major efforts will be directed towards the compilation of testimonials — anonymised accounts from people across as wide a base as we can find, based around the idea of a subjective survey. Take a look at the detailed introduction for our thought process and questions.
We also host articles about these problems. If you’re here for the first time, we encourage you to consult our manifesto, which highlights our foundational beliefs.
