Analytical and Comparative Perspectives
Bringing together an international line-up of contributors, this collection provides a transnational examination of recent developments within the academic profession in the light of changes to higher education systems, globalization and marketization.
Based on new comparative and analytical frameworks, this book provides a comprehensive and transnational account of major structural developments that are changing the traditional features of the academic profession. It examines the wider changes in higher education such as new governance models, massification and marketization, identity formation, internationalization and globalization, as well as new forms of knowledge production and their effects on academic life. This collection analyses the effects these changes will have on academic careers, and on employment relationships and academic labour markets in Europe and America. The volume includes contributions by many of today's leading scholars within the international higher education research community.
