Dietz, Gunther; Cortes, Laura Mateos – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2011
Multicultural discourse has reached Latin American higher education in the form of a set of policies targeting indigenous peoples. These policies are strongly influenced by the transfer of European notions of "interculturality", which, in the Mexican context, are understood as positive interactions between members of minority and…

Davis, Dana-Ain – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2011
Neoliberal values and ideology, which have broadly undermined social justice ideals, have been inserted into a range of public spheres both in the U.S.A. and internationally. Public higher education institutions have increasingly acquiesced to neoliberal strategies, which restrict access to public services, commodify the public sphere and…

Petersen, Eva Bendix; Davies, Bronwyn – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
In this article the authors take up the invitation to respond to the previous articles in the special issue. They discuss why it is so difficult to speak and write about gender and sexuality, and difference more generally, in the neoliberalised university. They make the case that the neoliberal university engages and uses categorical difference,…

Simpson, Bob; Humphrey, Robin – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
In the training of doctoral researchers in the use of qualitative research methods, considerable effort goes into preparation for fieldwork and the collection of data. Rather less attention, however, goes into what happens when they have collected their data and begin to make sense of it. In particular, relatively little attention has been paid to…

Hyatt, Susan Brin – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
As a political and economic philosophy, neoliberalism has been used to reshape schools and universities, making them far more responsive to the pressures of the market. The principles associated with neoliberalism have also extended to programmes for urban economic development, particularly with respect to the large-scale gentrification of…

Shear, Boone W.; Zontine, Angelina I. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
Ongoing transformations of the university--from changing working conditions to issues of affordability and access, increasing "accountability" measures and commodification of academic production--are increasingly referred to as university corporatisation and are unfolding within and concomitant to neoliberal globalisation. In this paper…

Lyon-Callo, Vincent – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
Corporatisation of universities and restructurings of K-12 schooling in the United States occurred during a period of broad economic, social and political restructurings, which have transformed the lives of middle-class Americans. Community and individual level investments in education are frequently represented as antidotes to increased…

Clarke, John – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
This article examines the modernisation of universities in the U.K., arguing that heterogeneous policy objectives and strategies have become condensed in the construction of higher education as a governable system and the university as a corporate enterprise. It argues that managerialism has displaced and subordinated professional and…

Morrish, Liz; Sauntson, Helen – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
This special issue sets out to investigate a number of areas of concern, regarding gender and sexuality, which are identifiable in the current British higher education environment. We argue that current dominant "neoliberal" discourses, which emphasise the commodification of higher education in the U.K., function to set limits upon…

David, Miriam – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
This article is a critique of the expansion of higher education in global and national contexts. First I provide an analysis of the transformation of higher education as a form of "academic capitalism" and how second-wave feminist critiques and pedagogies have become incorporated as have women, amongst other social groups, in…

Canaan, Joyce E. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
English higher education, like other parts of the public sector and higher education in other countries, is currently undergoing considerable change as it is being restructured as if it were a market in which universities, departments and academics compete against one another. This restructuring is producing new processes of subjectivity that…

Johnson, Richard – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2010
In this paper I adopt an auto/biographical method and a critique of abstract social theories to explore how the neoliberal restructuring of universities interacts with the gender order. Many universities are being remoulded as businesses for other businesses, with profound effects on internal relations, the subjectivities of academics and…
