    The ‘Woman Question’ and Higher Education

    Edited by Ann Mari May
    This uniquely interdisciplinary study offers a provocative, contemporary look at the ‘Woman Question’ in relation to higher education at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Leading feminist scholars from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines — including history, philosophy, education, psychology, sociology, and economics — evaluate the role of biology, discrimination, and choice in rationalizing women’s exclusion from fully participating in the process of knowledge production, as well as examining institutional impediments. Contextualizing arguments against women’s inclusion and including contemporary perspectives on gender, this book offers a rich, multi-layered examination and critical insights into understanding the near universal difficulties that women encounter as they seek to participate fully in the process of knowledge production.

  12. Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Edited by Marie-Laure Djelic, Radu Vranceanu
    This book sheds light on ‘hidden’ aspects of management theory by questioning its moral foundations: ethical and moral principles tend to become over time, deeply embedded, if not buried, in the intellectual and disciplinary subfields of management, particularly when the latter vie for scientific status. In the process, they often become invisible or indecipherable both to those who advance and diffuse knowledge as well as to those who receive, interpret and apply it. Learn More

  13. Universities and Strategic Knowledge Creation

    Universities and Strategic Knowledge Creation

    Edited by Andrea Bonaccorsi, Cinzia Daraio
    Although the role of universities in the knowledge society is increasingly significant, there remains a severe lack of systematic quantitative evidence at the micro-level, with virtually all policy discussion based on country level statistics or case studies. This book redresses the balance by examining original data from universities in six European countries – Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Learn More

  14. Teaching Pluralism in Economics

    Teaching Pluralism in Economics

    Edited by John Groenewegen
    This volume is concerned with the different schools within the discipline of economics (theoretical pluralism) and the relationship of economics to other disciplines, such as sociology, political science and philosophy (interdisciplinarity). It addresses the important implications of pluralism and interdisciplinarity for teaching economics at both undergraduate and graduate level and argues that the economics curriculum should pay equal attention to these new perspectives rather than concentrate on the traditional neoclassical mainstream.

  15. The Economic Analysis of Universities

    The Economic Analysis of Universities

    Susanne Warning
    This book provides a theoretical and empirical analysis of strategic positioning of public universities. The concept of strategic groups from management theory and a formal equilibrium model of differentiation under strategic interaction are developed to explain heterogeneity and the role of teaching and research quality as the two main strategic variables of universities. Using data for German publicly funded universities, the empirical tests apply Data Envelopment Analysis and econometric methods. The results offer important insights for all countries where publicly funded universities play a role. Recent shifts towards more competitive university systems further increase the relevance of this book. Learn More
