Goldsmiths' #Goldstrike: Tassia Kobylinska and Feyzi Ismail
In this very important conversation I was joined by Hackney residents Tassia Kobylinska and Feyzi Ismail
(Lecturers at Goldsmiths University.) We spoke about the ongoing #Goldstrike challenging a “fire and rehire” restructure which will see at least 52 redundancies across the university.
If this tactic succeeds, an ominous message will be sent about the influence of banks in higher education, one which will empower other HE managers across the sector to consider similar ideological restructures.
The speakers share their personal experience and how this impacts staff and universities.
