The Exploding Community? The University Idea and the Smashing of the Academic Atom.
Schuller, Tom
Oxford Review of Education, v16 n1 p3-14 1990
Identifies a number of centrifugal pressures currently splintering universities which raise questions about academia's sense of community. Uses the analogy of smashing the atom to explore these pressures. Cites increasing numbers of temporary and contract workers which brings about a division of labor that affects the nature of academic discourse and sense of community. (DB)
