Produktinformationen "Academic Labour, Unemployment and Global Higher Education"
This book explores how the kinds of world-wide restructurings of higher educationand research work that are underway today havenot only increased employment insecurity in academia but may actually beproducing unemployment both for those within academia and forgraduate job-seekers in other sectors. Recent and current re-organisations of higher education and researchwork, and re-orientations of academic life (as students, researchers, teachers)generally, which are taking place around the world, achieve exactly theopposite of what they claim: though ostensibly undertaken to facilitateemployment, these moves actually produce unemployment both for those withinacademia and for graduate job-seekers in other sectors. von Gupta, Suman
