Becoming Known through Email: A Case of Woman, Leadership, and an Awfully Familiar Strange Land
Drake, Pat
Gender and Education, v27 n2 p148-163 2015
This project explores women and educational leadership from the perspective of an individual who moved from the UK to Australia in order to take up the position of Dean of an education grouping in a university. Emails sent by the Dean to the group are analysed after nine months in post and categorised according to the requirements of the position description. The large volume of over 6000 emails in itself was such as to deny the possibilities of meaningful categorisation, but sorting through these digital communications enables discussion of the interplays amongst gender, emotional labour, rapid organisational change, and the speeding up of administration through the use of technology.
