This timely book offers a detailed, multidisciplinary view on the radical changes in higher education caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Chapters carefully investigate how the pandemic led to massive disruption in the sector, examining the contentious politics involved, and managerial and policy changes that stemmed from this unprecedented crisis.

Dually focused on recent events and imminent futures, this insightful book addresses questions raised about the nature of post-pandemic learning, for instance interrogating digital changes and their permanency. Institutional changes are observed on three different levels: micro, meso and macro. Ultimately this book successfully recounts past events and hypothesizes potential future developments within the sector.

Building the Post-Pandemic University will be crucial for students engaging in critical university studies, education policy, digital sociology and higher education studies. It will also be of interest for university policy makers seeking to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the higher education system.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is as important as it is timely. For higher education sectors to move forwards – and take their workforces along with them - the contours and legacies of the pandemic need to be much better understood. The contributors to this sensitively curated volume bring insight and evidence about what really happened to higher learning during Covid. The collection is more than the sum of its chapters; it goes beyond critique to offer a shared blueprint for what might come next. The neoliberal university embraces individualism and entrepreneurialism in the name of competition; this collection prompts us to advocate for a new settlement based on fairer and more humane values.’
