Every man's companion, or an useful pocket book - Roos, Anna Marie
In 1663, Martin Lister left his parents’ house in Lincolnshire to study medicine in Montpellier. During his three years in France, he kept a detailed journal in an almanac published as Every Man’s Companion: Or, An Useful Pocket-Book (MS Lister 19, Bodleian). There are other varied and rich referential sources of material about his journey utilised for this website. Another 25 pages of memoirs about Lister’s time in Montpellier also survive (MS Lister 5, Bodleian), as well as Lister’s correspondence. Furthermore, Lister’s travel companion, Phillip Skippon, and his mentor, the botanist John Ray, published accounts of part of their travels.

Revolutionary education? If only - Amsler, Sarah
[Introduction] It sounds like the start of a good joke: a sociologist walks into a student union somewhere in the UK, Das Kapital and a map of (all of) Latin America under one arm, a giant stack of unmarked essays under the other. She approaches a huddle of students engaged in deep conversation, assuming they have been inspired by a recent lecture on experiments in participatory economics and guerrilla warfare. Instead, they accost her with advertisements of jobs for which they will not be qualified after completing their irrelevant degree, tear their essays out of her hands in a show...
Creative militancy, militant creativity and the new British student movement - Amsler, Sarah
[Conclusion] Tonight, the UK news media was for the first time in my memory dominated by the serious voices of students, on the streets, in debates with government ministers, performing their new possibilities. In England they now talk openly about bringing down much more than university tuition fees. They can sing, dance, speak -- and they understand critical theory, as well as know how to shelter behind it. Perhaps there is hope for a new education and a new politics after all.
Breaking silences on broken promises - Amsler, Sarah
At a recent seminar of the Campaign for the Public University, someone raised what is an increasingly pressing question. Why aren’t more academics speaking and acting out in greater earnest against the destructive policies of privatization, marketization and corporatization now being imposed on and from within universities? For unlike the remarkable new student movements and apart from professional projects to mitigate the excesses of the government’s programme of extreme neoliberalization, academic responses have been very muted indeed. Even within the critical corners of the universities, and outside of politicizing crises such as departmental closures or parliamentary votes, there have been...
The other really useful knowledge: revalorising critique in the university - Amsler, Sarah
[...] We need to reclaim the commons within the university, to establish it where it has never been, to clarify in which intellectual and professional values we should defend and which should be transformed, to articulate and build alternative relationships between universities and other social institutions, and subject all of this to ongoing public and professional scrutiny. [...]
