This event is now archived and we are pleased to provide the following event media and assets, along with the original event overview.

Public discourse often presents academic work as volatile, in part because of rapid organizational change. But higher education organizations may not act as nimbly and strategically as reformers hope and critics fear. Organizational inertia creates both points of stability and instability for academic work. Drawing on research and perspectives from the United States and Europe, this seminar considers the organizational and social processes at play in shaping the conditions of academic work. Presenters working in political science, sociology, and higher education studies will consider how academic metrics, professional norms, cultural expectations, political processes, and academic mobility relate (or not) to organizational change and academic work.

CGHE webinars are fully open to participants. They are interactive, enabling attendees to speak directly in the webinar, ask questions of speakers when called in by the chair and see all other participants. At any time you can communicate directly with others, either all together or on a one-to-one basis, through the webinar Chat.
