Universities and the Public Recognition of Expertise
Arnoldi, Jakob
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v45 n1 p49-61 Mar 2007
This article argues that new sites of knowledge production, increasingly cultivated by the mass media, are threatening the role of academics and universities as traditional sources of expertise. Drawing upon the conceptual categories of Pierre Bourdieu, the article suggests an alternative way of understanding this "crisis of legitimacy."
