Meetings in Academia and the Spectre of University

Starts: Wednesday, 8 March 2017

From breaking the chains to appreciative mutual understanding of those who ‘have nothing in common’

Jarosław Jendza, University of Gdańsk (Poland)

CEPA seminar series

Abstract

Critical and radical perspectives on the condition of University seem to share the language of bruising war between the powers of good and evil. Academia is in chains, under siege and has been being constantly assaulted from the air and ground. In such conditions, allied forces aimed at retaking higher education gather in a specific mode, the mode of offensive, the mode of striking back. This lexis and metaphors pre-frames the situations in which university staff meet within Academia.

Based on qualitative, phenomenography-oriented, in-depth interviews the author makes an attempt to problematise – often taking for granted – the idea of meeting and presents the results of his research showing that meetings can take five different forms (from offensive to appreciative mutual understanding) resulting in (re)creating various and varied university cultures.
