Books Info:

The Entrepreneurial University free pdf The entrepreneurial university - and indeed the entrepreneurial researcher - has been tasked with making an impact. This international collection raises questions about who becomes the proper academic subject, fitting-in and getting ahead, and what falls off the agenda. In a time when the measure of educational impact risks being curtailed, shaped and measured through specific and pre-determined economies of value and use, this collections dwells on different (non)academic landscapes and the bodies, values and subjects that inhabit and disrupt them. It presents professional-personal reflections on research experience as well as interpretative accounts of navigating fieldwork and broader publics, politics and practices of (dis)engagement primarily through a feminist, queer and gender studies lens. Such concerns are practically related to the (in)accessibility of research practices, audiences, users and communities in and even beyond varied International fieldwork sites. It offers an interdisciplinary consideration of 'public sociology', the ethics of engagement, counter-publics and episodic politics, and issues of ownership and responsibility, agency and constraint.
