Disputation i arbetsvetenskap
Jo Ese försvarar sin doktorsavhandling i arbetsvetenskap, "Defending the university? Academics' reactions to managerialism in Norwegian higher education”.
Nedan följer en kort beskrivning av innehållet (ur baksidestexten):
“What is managerialism in higher education? And how do academics react to it? In this thesis, the author tries to answer these questions.
The first question is addressed through an analysis of managerialism in light of the history and norms of academic work. The second question is addressed through an interview-based qualitative study of how academics react to managerialism. Drawing on theoretical concepts like resistance, organizational misbehavior, gaming and functional stupidity, the author develops a set of academic reactions to managerialism.
A central argument in the thesis states that academic resistance towards management differs from traditional workplace resistance, as it is performed to protect academic work from what academics see as the corrosive effects of managerial systems.
By addressing these issues, the thesis contributes to the knowledge on academic work in the 21stcentury, with a special emphasis on how members of faculty react to contemporary developments in the management of universities.”
