‘What is neoliberalism (and what are the implications for Higher Education Futures)?’
Professor Tracey Bunda
Professor Bob Lingard
Dr Liz Humphries
On behalf of AARE you are invited to participate in this year's Theory Workshop Zoom, 2020. The Workshop targets ECR and HDR students and aims to make theory explicit for them through this workshop theme of Neoliberalism. Other interested colleagues might also wish to attend to also support ECR/HDR discussion in such uncertain times.
The theme is a question ‘What is neoliberalism (and what are the implications for Higher Education Futures)?’. A panel of three presenters and a Discussant, each with varying specialty research areas, working from diverse theoretical perspectives are being invited to share how theory informs their methodologies and the ways this plays out in research design, data collection, analysis, and research translation activities. Three speakers with expertise in work about Neoliberalism will speak for 10 minutes, facilitate smaller discussion breakout discussions where you can meet and ask questions of a speaker, and then return to participate in a whole-group forum led by a Discussant and for a Q&A session. The place of theory in research agendas attending to neoliberalism will be addressed.
