The Contested Terrain of Academic Program Reduction.
Gumport, Patricia J.
Journal of Higher Education, v64 n3 p283-311 May-Jun 1993
A discussion of college and university retrenchment based on interviews with 40 faculty and 20 administrators at 2 research universities looks at programs threatened with termination as terrains contested among academic fields, where wide divergences in professional/discipline-based power become evident. Results appeared to have less to do with the disciplines themselves than with the broader political economy. (MSE)
