Opening Edumeet conference of the thematic block OTHER FUTURES. A meeting to talk about education with Juan Freire. Higher education used to be a very stable and conservative societal function, activity, and business. Deep social, cultural and technological transformations and “earthquakes” occurring in the last decades (and finally a pandemic) signal that probably universities are confronting imminent revolutions. We will explore all the risks and opportunities facing universities and some strategic whys and hows to try to survive and flourish in this new Barbarian world.
