    Event synopsis: Governments in Canada and elsewhere have embraced “austerity” as a necessary public policy to eliminate budgetary deficits and ensure future prosperity. How has this “austerity agenda” affected faculty, students, administrators and institutions in Ontario, in Canada, and globally? Is “austerity” inevitable, or are there alternatives? And what might universities do now, and in the future, in response to the “austerity agenda” or possible alternatives? The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Association’s 2013 Conference – “Academia in the Age of Austerity” – seek to answer these questions and more. The conference critically explored the idea of “austerity” by unpacking the meaning of the term, its implications and impact on higher education, as well as considered other possible policy directions. Like previous OCUFA conferences, a diversity of views were sought in each of the keynote and panel sessions. The conference took place on January 10-11, 2013 at the Pantages Hotel in Toronto.
