The Mis-Education of the Indebted Student

Wozniak, Jason Thomas

In the contemporary global neoliberal economy financial debt shapes indebted subjectivity. It also drastically alters education philosophy, policy and practice. This dissertation analyzes in an interdisciplinary fashion the impacts of financial debt on subjectivity and educational experience. As a work of philosophy of education, it also examines the ways in which education can be a practice that liberates subjectivity from debt’s delimiting force. Emancipatory education theory and practice play an important role in current and future struggles for debt jubilee.
