Towards an Uncertain Politics of Professionalism: Teacher and Nurse Identifies in Flux.
Stronach, Ian; Corbin, Brian; Stark, Sheila; McNamara, Olwen; Warne, Tony
Journal of Education Policy, v17 n1 p109-38 Jan-Feb 2002
Discusses nature of professional identity, focusing on teachers and nurses, and articulates view of "professional" as "caught between an 'economy of performance' and various 'ecologies of practice'." Rejects over-simplified understanding of "professional" identity and advocates embracing "ambivalence and contradiction" within professional identities rather than trying to "reduce or resolve them." (Contains 115 references.) (KSB)
