While access to higher education (HE) has substantially increased over the past number of years, the evidence suggests that social inequalities continue to be reproduced in terms of course level, field of study and institutional status.

Scott, Colin – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
The management of commitments by higher education institutions to equality, diversity and inclusion both for employees and students presents significant challenges.

Taylor, Carol A. – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
The contemporary university privileges speed, precarity, competition, and performativity; it operates through modes of accelerationism, work intensification and productivity; and it is oriented to producing academic subjectivities rooted in self-commodification. Much of this is antithetical to feminist ethics and working practices which focus on…

O'Dea, Jane – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
As a faculty dean, I was constantly surprised over the years by the number of female academics who expressed reluctance to do my job. Why were they so reluctant? Why did they cite intense argument and personal criticism as significant deterrents? Focusing specifically on academic argument, and the crucial role of autonomy in academe, this paper…

Harford, Judith – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
The under-representation of women in senior echelons of the academy is well-documented internationally. In the Irish context, the issue of gender equality has reached the active policy agenda relatively recently, largely triggered by a number of high profile lawsuits and the subsequent setting up of an expert review panel and a gender equality…

Fitzgerald, Tanya – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
This article considers the ambivalent and contradictory positions that women in senior leadership roles in universities occupy.

O'Connor, Pat – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
Using a Feminist Institutional perspective, this paper suggests that the explanation for the slow pace of change in the gender profile of the professoriate lies in the gender awareness of managerial leadership. In Irish universities, women now constitute 51 per cent of the lecturers, but only 24 per cent of those at full professorial level and…
