Do what sustains you: desire and the enterprise university

Riddle, Stewart (2017) Do what sustains you: desire and the enterprise university. In: Producing pleasure in the contemporary university. Bold Visions in Educational Research, 59. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, pp. 25-36. ISBN 978-94-6351-177-3

Abstract

Academics live in strange times. Everywhere we are coded and constructed within the machine of the enterprise university to faithfully produce high quality research outputs and secure competitive external research funding grants. We are counted and graded, chopped up and classified, found to be acceptable (or otherwise) within the logical bounds of a system that rewards entrepreneurial and innovative research that secures large grants and is published in high-ranked research journals.
