What is a Student?

“Most people guard and keep; they suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas in reality what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system of reality and what they assume themselves to be. One can give nothing whatever without giving oneself–that is to say, risking oneself. If one cannot risk oneself then one is simply incapable of giving.”

- James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

“The university stands for the institutional apparatus through which society ensures its uneventful reproduction at the least cost to itself.”

- Michel Foucault
