The Unacknowledged Value of Female Academic Labour Power for Male Research Careers
Angervall, Petra; Beach, Dennis; Gustafsson, Jan
Higher Education Research and Development, v34 n5 p815-827 2015
Academic work in Sweden's higher education system is changing character. Distinctly different career pathways are emerging, as facilities for developing research careers and capital have become both more restricted and more dependent on external funding. These developments are in focus in the present article. Based on ethnographic research and a series of semi-structured interviews with new academics and senior academic mentors in education faculties, the research suggests that several factors intercede in how careers are developed and experienced. The unacknowledged exploitation of female academic labour is perhaps amongst the more significant of these.
