processes. At times, it would seem that education had been done injury by an uncertain and absent perpetrator. From where do these cuts come? Who has done this? When did this happen? What now? The statement can be appreciated just as well for what it says as for what it leaves out. Its resolutely present tense impels us to supply a history or future that the figure itself would never yield. Disclosed in these words is an anonymous occasion, vacated of anyone recognizable. Ultimately, the image leaves appropriately undecided if education's current position is one of recovery, supplication, or something else altogether. This issue brings together essays written in response to what, in the mildest of terms, were particularly bad years for higher education beginning with the global recession in 2008. This beginning, of course, had a much earlier beginning, but the financial crisis qui parle fall/winter 2011 vol.20, no.1 might serve as a loose marker for a period of intensified compromises to higher education, both economic and symbolic, which were often carried out in the name of a necessary austerity in the face of unusually scarce resources.
