McCulloch, Alistair – Australian Universities' Review, 2018
Despite being a staple of academic life (or perhaps because it is so taken-for-granted), the academic conference has been generally under-utilised as a site for academic research. Using participant observation as its methodology, this article draws on a long career of conference attendance to present two iron laws of conferences which address the…

Davies, Martin; Calma, Angelito – Australian Universities' Review, 2017
Michael Calver's recent exhortation "Please Don't Aim for a Highly Cited Paper" (AUR, 57(1): pp. 45-49) is welcome and a timely reminder of the problems associated with seeking citations at any cost. While not disagreeing with the concerns he raises we offer another way of looking at citation-seeking; thereby outlining a reconsideration…

Thompson, Lester; Wadley, David – Australian Universities' Review, 2017
The context of contemporary universities restrains their ability to drive public policy. Yet, currently, they confront the relative success of a global network of neoliberal institutes, referred to as think-tanks, promoting freedoms derived from particular ideologies. Neoliberal reasoning has so moulded classical ideas of individual freedom into a…

Burford, James – Australian Universities' Review, 2017
The purpose of this article is to explore how we might understand "bad feelings" and their place in academic activism.

Lawless, Ann – Australian Universities' Review, 2017
General/professional staff are activists in Australian universities. Their activism has seldom been researched in scholarly approaches in higher education studies nor in activism studies.
