About this book

This book proposes the framework of gendered academic citizenship to capture the multidimensional and complex dynamics of power relations and everyday practices in the contemporary context of academic capitalism. The book proposes an innovative definition of academic citizenship as involving three key components: membership, recognition and belonging. Based on new empirical data, it identifies four ideal-types of academic citizenship: fulllimitedtransitional citizenship and non-citizenship. The different chapters of the book provide comprehensive reviews of the relevant research literature and offer original insights into the patterns of gender inequalities and practices of gendered academic citizenship across and within different national contexts. The book concludes by setting a comprehensive research agenda for the future.

This book will be of interest to academic researchers and students at all levels in the disciplines of sociology, gender studies, higher education, political science and cultural anthropology.

Reviews

“This edited volume is an important contribution to gendering academic research. It provides an excellent overview of recent experiences and challenges within the research field Gender in Higher Education and Research Institutions. The chapters employ a gender lens on academic citizenship to produce new empirical knowledge about the re/production of gender in/equality in academia from different perspectives and national contexts. These analyses demonstrate convincingly that the gender lens on citizenship in academia is an analytical tool with great theoretical and methodological potentials for gender research.”
