Agonism and the Argument Culture in the Academy
Aim and Definition
Deborah Tannen, author of the book “Agonism in the Academy: Surviving the Argument Culture” raises various valid concerns in the education sector and academics in general. Tannen tries to put across the point that the whole idea of educating ourselves might be at stake. This has been made possible by agonism in the academic world. In her article, she gives several illustrations that prove the point that agonism is creating controversies in many educational institutions. Tannen aims at disproving the fact that critique is the best way of learning. She claims that if that factor is achieved, then people would be in a position to grasp more from one another.
