Developing Reflexive Identities through Collaborative, Interdisciplinary and Precarious Work: The Experience of Early Career Researchers
Enright, Bryony; Facer, Keri
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n5 p621-634 2017
This paper explores the experiences of 24 Early Career Researchers working in interdisciplinary and precarious employment conditions in which they are managing collaborations with multiple partners beyond the university as part of the AHRC's "Connected Communities" Programme. These conditions emerge from conflicting sources--from critical and emancipatory moves in knowledge production as well as from globalising neoliberal education policies. The paper draws on Archer's concept of reflexive identity to identify four different reflexive orientations developed by ECRs in these conditions: the disciplinarian, the freelancer, the worker bee and the social activist.
