9781780525006: Hard Labour? Academic Work and the Changing Landscape of Higher Education (International Perspectives on Higher Education Research)

There can be little doubt that higher education institutions (HEIs) have experienced massive changes in the past three decades. Across England, the US, Australia and New Zealand, new public management has introduced corporate governance structures, strategic plans, performance management, quality assurance processes, a client-focused approach to students and curriculum, and a commodification of higher education that has seen an unprecedented growth in international student numbers. In particular, higher education has been positioned as a means to contribute to the knowledge economy and gain a level of competitive advantage in the global marketplace. In the past two decades, numbers of HEIs have increased and this has, in turn stimulated a number of challenges for administrators, academics, students, and the broader community.

Hard Labour? Academic Work and the Changing Landscape of Higher Education provokes the reader to think critically about the emergence of corporate styles of governance, management and leadership in HEIs and ways in which the demands of new public management and the knowledge economy has shaped and re-shaped scholarly work and identity.

Drawing on data from Australia, England and New Zealand, the book addresses how neo liberal policies of successive governments have decreased autonomy of academics and increased regimes of surveillance, radically altering how academics think about and engage in their intellectual work.

Helen Gunter - Manchester University, UK

Review:

Fitzgerald (educational leadership and management), Julie White (education, both La Trobe U., Australia), and Helen M. Gunter (educational policy, U. of Manchester, Britain) respond to a period of intense turmoil and change in higher education in Australia and England by initiating a dialogue on what it means to be an academic and engage in academic work in the 21st century. Each has chosen a theme through which to examine the changes, tensions, and uncertainties. Among their topics are intellectual work and knowledge production, academic work and performance, and ivory basements and ivory towers. There is no index. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
