My participation in and witness to California’s fifty-year experiment in public education have become the means by which I have developed a critical perspective of the institution as the cornerstone of training for membership in advanced civil society. This has also led to a deep concern over how these knowledge systems will fail or remain embedded within the formation of our individual and collective unconscious. Further, the parcels missing from my own training, which contain the revolutionary year of 1968, have given me cause to join forces with those student activists, of past and present, who continue to pursue the project of ’68. We work to recuperate what are and could be the radical practices of the creative scholar—within and despite the limits of the institution.
