Abstract

This special issue is composed of a selection of articles at the “8th International Critical Management Studies Conference: Extending the Limits of neo-liberal capitalism” held at the University of Manchester, UK between the 10th–12th July 2013. Our stream was entitled ‘Biting the Hand That Feeds’: Reflections on Power, Politics, Identity and Managerialism at Work in Academia. The stream was designed to bring together researchers with an interest in critical perspectives on power, politics, inequality and identity and how they were of particular relevance to work in the academy. In particular, our concern was to provide a platform for advancing contemporary thinking in relation to the conditions and consequences of neo-liberalism and other changes affecting the lives of academics in universities.
