Regulation, engagement and academic production

May, T. ORCID: 2016. Regulation, engagement and academic production. Scott, A., Harding, A. and Laske, S., eds. Bright Satanic Mills, Routledge, pp. 119-132. (10.4324/9781315569970)

Full text not available from this repository.


This chapter1 examines the issues that inform the relationship between academic modes of production and the knowledge economy. It is not content for this examination to take place against the background of presuppositions that the knowledge economy is a distinct subsystem, or even the dominant system, informing the development of capitalism, or that it has self-evident implications for the direction of higher education. Nor is it content to invoke outdated notions of academic freedom, or join those voices that speak of the ‘academic’ as if it had no relevance to contemporary issues. Therefore, it exists in a place that is in the process of becoming, but is not yet fully developed as the site of public debate concerning the role and place of higher education in the future.
