This would only contribute to, rather than help resolve, the crisis of social democracy in the British Labour Party.

A Satire on Academic Politics

by Iain M

Cornford's 'Microcosmographia Academica' (1908) remains my favourite satire on academic politics. For those unfamiliar with it, it takes the form of being a guide to the young academic interested in gaining influence, and contains the warning, "...and may your soul (if you have a soul) find mercy!"

An interesting article looking at the nature of universities, particularly in relation to boundaries  using Assemblage theory and looking at examples of use of social media to which we could add the treatment of @pryamvadagopal on the UK.
