Accounting for a Sociological Life: Influences and Experiences on the Road from Welfarism to Neoliberalism
Ball, Stephen J.
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v36 n6 p817-831 2015
This is an attempt to review what I am now. To give some coherence to an incoherent academic life, written against the background of profound changes is what it means to be an academic. The paper begins in a welfare state primary school and ends in a global neoliberal university.
