We talk about the “capitalist gaze” and how it impacts the creativity of academics. Casting our research outcomes as “products” can be deeply chilling to the imaginative work of scholarship. Research as an assembly line, or as a deli counter (slicing your work into ever thinner slices to maximize number of publications) constricts scope for experimentation, and removes the possibility of failure – which is equally vital to discovery. In dialogue with our audience on FB during the live call, we explore how this is a colonized and white supremacist model of constant and linear forward progress.
