Scholarship as cultural production
Between 2012 and 2015, I worked with six other scholars on a project that looked at scholarship as cultural production to help understand how the tensions of precarious, early-career academic employment are articulated on a day-to-day basis in blogs, news reports and professional newsletters, by academics and journalists (primarily). The article that emerged from that is in process, authored by five of the people involved.
In the meantime, we thought we would share elements of the research we did.
- First is a collage of almost all of the headlines from the items studied, created by Mél Hogan.
- Second is a list of the items studied.
- Third is a slideshow incorporating images of the items studied, which we used as a prompt for discussion during a roundtable discussion at the Canadian Communication Association conference in 2014.
The scholars involved are:
