Title:
You need tits to get on round here: Gender and sexuality in the entrepreneurial university of the 21st century.
Authors:
Fisher, Ginny
Abstract:
Drawing upon five open-ended interviews with academic staff and two years of participant observation, this article presents an ethnographic study of gendered and sexualized work cultures in the Business School of a large British university I shall call Maxi which is struggling to find a place for itself in the new managerialist climate of early 21st-century British higher education. Despite significant increases in the number of female academics and academic managers, women in this organization are still subject to unfair and differential treatment, attitudes and expectations by (some) men. Women academic managers are still seen as `other' whilst men academics and managers represent the norm.
