    Abstract:
    This chapter explores how certain forms of academic publishing—especially scholar-led, community-owned, open-access platforms and presses—might enable better forms of institutional life conducive to personal flourishing and the increase of public knowledge (and to lubricating the important connection between the two), especially at a time when the University is swarming with managerial technocrats invested in privatizing and outsourcing higher education, students are saddled with staggering levels of debt, and the casualization of academic labor is at an all-time high. This chapter also ruminates the important relationships between academic freedom, radical democratization, and publishing modes that value openness as a form of the ethics of care.
