Making space for feminism in the neo-liberal academy

In recent years the academy has gone through massive changes, which can be attributed to the desire to internationalise, globalise and marketise higher education, implementing neo-liberal approaches and producing neo-liberal staff-student subjects. Such ideologies have led to transformations that permeate not only academic work but also shape academic trajectories, feelings and identities. The conference aims to discuss such issues by creating a forum to debate current issues surrounding the future of academia and discuss how and where feminist research is impacting practice and policy and where practices and policies are driving new research.  What pressures, tensions and failures might be felt in differently inhabiting academia?

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

  • Professor Kalwant Bhopal, Professorial Research Fellow , Centre for Research in Race and Education, University of Birmingham, UK
  • Professor Mary Lou Rasmussen, Professor of Sociology (Gender, sexuality and education), Australian National University
