Book Review: Hacking the Academy

Hacking the Academy is in an exercise in contradictions, a text aimed squarely at the entrenched humanities scholarly tradition. An open call was given for submissions along the theme (hacking the academy) but only a week, a speck considering the glacial timelines of academic publishing. The books subversive content culled from decidedly un-academic sources Twitter, emails, blogs, even a Ted talk, serve as exemplars to the goal of Hacking the Academy: academia as we have understood it is dead, we must evolve.
