Contemporary, university and resistance: the crisis paradox
AbstractThis theoretical essay analyzes the university's dilemma regarding its modernization, without losing its essence as a producer of knowledge, and, at the same time, questioning its construction and socialization. For this, it problematizes the process of intellectual production in its relations with the broader processes of society, that is, social transformations. The methodology constitutes a bibliographical research that seeks to guarantee the foundations for a discussion about the role of the university in contemporary society and to offer elements to think about a proposal of resistance to what happens inside it. Thus, it reflects on the existence of crises within the university, as well as on whether there is interference in the production of knowledge due to this crisis. This theoretical-analytical effort does not seek to exhaust the discussion about the dilemma of modernization of the university and the crisis, but to polemicize the themes that directly involve Higher Education Institutions. This movement seeks to build answers and advances must be anchored in a field of knowledge that dialectically discusses context and process.
