"Stability and change in academic work and departments" by Brendan Cantwell, Matt Grossmann, Caleb Lucas, (all Michigan State University) & Jelena Brankovic (Bielefeld University) : a CGHE seminar

Activity: Attending an eventOrganisation or participation in workshops, courses or seminars


Public discourse often presents academic work as volatile, in part because of rapid organizational change. But higher education organizations may not act as nimbly and strategically as reformers hope and critics fear. Organizational inertia creates both points of stability and instability for academic work. Drawing on research and perspectives from the United States and Europe, this seminar considers the organizational and social processes at play in shaping the conditions of academic work. Presenters working in political science, sociology, and higher education studies will consider how academic metrics, professional norms, cultural expectations, political processes, and academic mobility relate (or not) to organizational change and academic work.
