Brennan, E. 'Why we don't need an academic rebel alliance'. Politico (politico.ie). 18 May 2012.

Abstract

As an intellectual, the first duty of the academic who wishes to engage with society is on the level of ideas, writes Eddie Brennan. Trying to build a new society within the institutions, language and politics of the nineteenth century is hopeless; what is needed from intellectuals and academics is rebellious thought.
