Time as the Fourth Dimension in the Globalization of Higher Education
Walker, Judith
Journal of Higher Education, v80 n5 p483-509 Sep-Oct 2009
This paper calls for an analysis of time to be integrated into the theories on the globalization of higher education. Specifically, the author argues that academic capitalism, fuelled by globalization, has led to changes in the university visible in time/space compression, time acceleration, the reification of time and our internalization of the importance of managing time in a justifiable and successful manner. (Contains 2 figures and 3 endnotes.)
