The research will form the basis of Ms Giedre Kligyte's doctoral research under the supervision of A/Prof Simon Barrie and Dr Tai Peseta.
The role of collegiality in academic work
The study will explore how academics evoke the idea of collegiality to explain the apparent uniqueness of academic work in the context of increasing managerialisation of HE environment. In particular, it will investigate how the collective imaginary around collegiality in academic work is constructed, maintained, contested, and negotiated.
