The Verbatim Formula: Caring for Care Leavers in the Neoliberal University

Inchley, Maggie, Dar, Sadhvi, Pujara, Susmita and Baker, Sylvan (2019) The Verbatim Formula: Caring for Care Leavers in the Neoliberal University. Research in Drama Education, 24 (3). pp. 413-419. ISSN 1356-9783

Abstract

British universities have historically excluded sections of society from entering and from participating in decision-making. The neoliberal university has entrenched these inequalities in insidious ways that are resistant to change. By drawing on critical feminisms, we delineate a politics of careful solidarity that can mitigate the erasure of marginalised young people in university governance structures. We outline a participatory methodology that uses arts-based evaluation to provide channels for democratic discussion and listening. Our methodology centres the voices of young people with an experience of the care system – a cohort who are heavily excluded, and whose knowledge is stigmatised.
