Abstract

This chapter focuses on the growing differentiation of institutional types, functions and roles of the academic profession. It reports on changing external relationships between universities and other social institutions and considers the implications of these changes for the roles and careers of the academic profession. More specifically, this includes changes in identities and in power distribution, shifts from ‘collegial’ to ‘competitive’ relationships between staff, new roles and divisions of labour, greater ‘boundary’ crossing – between both institutions and academic subjects and new forms of insecurity.
