Abstract

I explore the role of intellectuals who are university professors associated with institutions of higher education in modern globalized societies as it articulates on three levels: the intellectual’s interventionist role in the public sphere in the project of revitalizing politics, the intellectual as a witness in that s/he historicizes politics and the public sphere, and finally the pedagogical dimension of this project. Ultimately, I argue, theintellectual’s political project is necessarily a pedagogical one, to the extent that pedagogy must always be an act of intervention, a form of academic labor, an immanently political and ethical practice. In this respect, it is the intellectual’s responsibility to make the pedagogical morepolitical by creating environments where students can translate private issues into public troubles.
