Update on my project

This week my brain has hurt a little bit with trying to keep the whole potential of my barely-started project in it all at once. Here is a draft of my project update, which is a 3,000 word thing the department wanted:

It includes my current chapter headings, which are:

1: Purchasing a National University System: universities, the state and the ownership of knowledge in the 1950s
2: God Professors and Student Ratbags: control and freedom of university knowledge and power in the 1960s and 1970s
3: Who owns free knowledge? Free education, the knowledge economy and the multiversity in Australia
4: From Gift Culture to Fees for Degrees: deregulation, ownership and commodification in learning & teaching
5: Knowledge in the Age of Digital Reproduction: universities, knowledge and the Internet
6: Property, Possession and the Protection of Knowledge: research commercialisation in Australian universities
