LUCKY PIERRE FREE UNIVERSITY: The Ceiling Has Been Leaking for 23 Years: Normalizing Precarity in a Neoliberal World

Join Lucky Pierre Free University’s reading group "The Ceiling Has Been Leaking for 23 Years: Normalizing Precarity in a Neoliberal World." Reading group participants will receive 3 course credits toward a fully unaccredited MFA. Or, perhaps we’ll just buy you a beer.
