Exploring Faculty Experiences in a Striving University through the Lens of Academic Capitalism
Gonzales, Leslie D.; Martinez, E.; Ordu, C.
Studies in Higher Education, v39 n7 p1097-1115 2014
In this paper, we draw from academic capitalism to explore the work lives and experiences of faculty who work in a striving university. Our analysis suggests that faculty members feel pressures induced by academic capitalism, including a lack of space, no time and the sense of constant surveillance. Our work adds to the theoretical as well as empirical discussions concerning striving, academic capitalism and the impacts of both on the academic profession.
