Summary Is market-driven research healthy? Responding to the language of "knowledge mobilization" that percolates through Canadian postsecondary education, the literary scholars who contributed these essays address the challenges that an intensified culture of research capitalism brings to the humanities in particular. Stakeholders in Canada's research infrastructure--university students, professors, and administrators; grant policy makers and bureaucrats; and the public who are the ultimate inheritors of such knowledge--are urged to examine a range of perspectives on the increasingly entrepreneurial university environment and its growing corporate culture.
