Christopher Newfield is Professor of literature and American studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Much of his research is in Critical University Studies, which links his enduring concern with humanities teaching to the study of how higher education continues to be re-shaped by industry and other economic forces.

Julia Schleck is Associate Professor of English at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. She is the author of Telling True Tales of Islamic Lands: Forms of Mediation in English Travel Writing, 1575–1630 (Susquehanna University Press, 2011) and Dirty Knowledge: Academic Freedom in the Age of Neoliberalism (Provocations series, University of Nebraska Press, 2022). She also co-editor (with Christina Lee, Princeton University) of the book series Connected Histories in the Early Modern World, published by Amsterdam University Press.
