Omtale Academic Labour, Unemployment and Global Higher Education
This book explores how the kinds of world-wide restructurings of higher education
and research work that are underway today have
not only increased employment insecurity in academia but may actually be
producing unemployment both for those within academia and for
graduate job-seekers in other sectors. Recent and current re-organisations of higher education and research
work, and re-orientations of academic life (as students, researchers, teachers)
generally, which are taking place around the world, achieve exactly the
opposite of what they claim: though ostensibly undertaken to facilitate
employment, these moves actually produce unemployment both for those within
academia and for graduate job-seekers in other sectors.
