HERO-SEMINARIET
The University in the Age of Unbridled Knowledge Production

Robert Frodeman presenterar pågående forskning.

At the founding of the University of Berlin, Wilhelm von Humboldt described scholarship ‘as something not yet achieved and as something that cannot ever be completely achieved’ – i.e., as an infinite research project. Universities still treat the production of knowledge as infinite, even as the center of knowledge production has moved off campus. Whether in the corporate sphere or across social media, knowledge today is unbridled in its pursuit of its political and economic ends. How should the university respond to these new socio-epistemic conditions?

Seminariet hålls på engelska.

HERO-SEMINARIET
Contextualizing capitalism in academia: How capitalist and feudalist organizing principles reinforce each other at Polish universities

Michal Zawadzki och Tommy Jensen presenterar artikeln Contextualizing Capitalism in Academia.

In this paper, we show how capitalism and feudalism reinforce each other to enable the former’s success in the higher education context. In this regard, Polish universities are an interesting case due to Poland’s capitalist shock therapy in the 1990s, its Western European membership in the European Union in the 2000s and due to recent reforms intended to modernize Polish academia. Based on 36 interviews with Polish early career academics from urban universities with experience working in watchdogs of higher education, we examine respondents’ perspectives on the current capitalist reforms. They treat ongoing changes as a solution for the problems experienced and defined as “feudal”: political labeling, abuse of power and discrimination against women. Understanding capitalism and feudalism through their organizing principles, the main contribution of this study is that it demonstrates how capitalist organizing principles fix existing feudalist organizing principles to flourish in Polish university. Hence, it is difficult for early career academics to recognize that capitalist organizing principles are in fact reinforcing rather than eliminating (as the advocates of capitalist reforms often claim) feudal problems in Polish academia.
