    Abstract [en]

    This article considers changes which occurred during the 1990s in Universities in Sweden with the main discussion focusing on the way in which these changes have affected the work situation for lecturers from a gender, management and organisation perspective. The empirical data used to inform the article consists of depth-interviews with male and female lecturers in junior and middle-management positions at one University in Sweden. The article explores the issues examining in particular the ways in which women and men conform to the stereotype of ‘abstract worker' on which the new public management appears to rely. The abstract worker in conceptualised as a person who does not, and indeed should not for purposes of a career, have any personal responsibility outside of work. In this conceptualisation loyalty to the employer is the most important priority for the abstract worker with responsibility for children and the family counting heavily against those with career aspirations. The gendered implications of this and other issues arising from the recent changes in University life in Sweden are examined in the article.

    Academic shape shifting: gender, management and identities in Sweden and England2006Inngår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 13, nr 2, s. 275-298Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers gender and managerial identities in organizational life, taking the recent change in higher education in Sweden and England with the coming of the new public management as the context in which to explore these issues. In reviewing the literature on gender identity and organization/management, which has moved from a pre-occupation with difference to an examination of the complex inter-relationship between gender and organization, an attempt is made to operationalize the concept of ositionality, using insights from the work of Alcoff and Melucci. It is argued that Academic Shape Shifting is developed by academics during their time in academia, as well as in defensive and proactive response to the recent managerial reforms. A number of indicative responses to the recent changes are identified. These are: the Stressed Professor, the Managerial Advocate, the Administrative Patrician, the Accidental Female, the Academic Chameleon and the Resolute Researcher. As Academic Shape Shifting is used by social individuals in interaction with others, at particular moments in time and in different circumstances, it is concluded that the implications suggest complexity in the changing character of university life, with female academics in middle range positions facing more difficult compromises than their male counterparts. Key words. academic positioning; gender; higher education; identity; new public management; Sweden and England

    Changing leadership and gender in public sector organizations2012Inngår i: British Journal of Management, ISSN 1045-3172, E-ISSN 1467-8551, Vol. 23, nr 3, s. 402-414Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to examine the ways in which leadership at middle management level in the public realm is gendered. This is attempted largely through a consideration of academic literature, supported by some empirical findings from a research investigation into higher education and social work in Sweden and England and a review of literature that reveals varying types of leadership characterized as masculinist. Taking the position that context shapes social relationships and subject positions, and provides opportunities as well as constraints, we consider leadership in the public sector under the sway of newpublic management, framed by neo-liberalism and the valorization of competition, selfinterested instrumentality, uncertainty and risk, operationalized in public sector organizations through performative regimes. It is argued that while some women and men are willing participants in the new regimes, others are antagonistic or ambivalent, finding themselves mired in neo-bureaucratic processes of surveillance and control, often stuck in occupational cul-de-sacs. It is contended that neo-liberalism and new public management are associated with masculinist forms of rationality that elevate individual winners and losers and divert attention from collective issues of gender. Rather than focus on gendered styles of leadership it is suggested that it is more important to look at their gendered performance and effects.

    Essentially political: gender and the politics of care in Mumbai2010Inngår i: International feminist journal of politics, ISSN 1461-6742, E-ISSN 1468-4470, Vol. 12, nr 1, s. 25-44Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to examine the gendered politics of social work in the Indian city of Mumbai, locating it in a post-colonial context. In order to do this secondary sources are examined along with empirical data collected by the authors. These are interpreted through the framework of a social constructionist methodology that draws on political sociology as well as elements of post-colonial theory and Foucauldian post-structuralism in order to acknowledge agency within a 'location' marked by both constraints and opportunities. The article explores the circumstances in which politicians and administrators find themselves in Mumbai. In considering gender and developing a strategy of what we term 'political essentialism', it is shown that those involved have been drawing on experiences in civil society and using imagined dualisms of gender to position themselves as shapers of social work in Mumbai.

    Gender and the managerial turn in higher education: Accounts from female academics in England and Sweden2014Inngår i: Higher Education and Research in Nordic Countries: who should pay?, Luleå: Luleå tekniska universitet, 2014, s. 65-74Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the consequences of the turn to managerialism in higher education in England and Sweden, following the introduction of New Public Managementreforms. The paper considers some of the gender implications, which are explored through the accounts of eight, long-serving, female academics. The first interviews were conducted in 2001 with two female academics in Sweden and two in England, and followed up ten years later in 2011-2012 with four new interviewees, all long-serving female academics. The same interview questions were used at both occasions. While there were differences between the two countries, there was also much similarity. In 2001 respondents generally presented a negative picture of the reforms and highlighted the problems of adjusting to them. Ten years later there seemed to be more accommodation to the reforms. And yet the gendered implications of this are significant: women academics are clearly finding it difficult to pursue research to the extent that they would wish, while they are taking on many teaching and administrative functions.

    Movement and change in the public sector: bringing social movements into the analysis2006Inngår i: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 8, nr 3, s. 433-448Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay seeks to develop a theoretical framework for public-sector managerial change that draws on social movement theory, an approach located within the domain of political sociology. The essay opens with a brief examination of the literature on the New Public Management and governance which, it is argued, draws on a neo-liberal agenda, displays a tendency to de-centre or marginalize considerations of democracy and politics and offers abstract, top – down, descriptions of change. Approaches to social movement theory are considered, with particular attention paid to two dominant schools: the political process approach and new social movement theory which account for ‘how’ and ‘why’ change occurs. By operating through grass-roots networks, and offering symbolic challenges to the dominant neo-liberal order, social movements help us to see more clearly the limitations of conventional wisdom on public-sector managerial change, and consider resistances, accommodations and messy compromises. The essay seeks to use such insights to re-conceptualize public-sector managerial change.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper is concerned with exploring the changing character of work in higher education in Sweden and England. A study of this kind is timely not least because both countries have been subjected to a series of changes in recent years in their respective public sectors (Berg 2000; Clarke and Newman 1997) - with universities, according to some sources, significantly affected (Barry, Chandler and Clark 2001; Askling 1999; Fogelberg et al 1999; Prichard and Willmott 1997; Parker and Jary 1995). Yet the implications for female academics is only belatedly being recognised (Goode and Bgilhole 1998; Morley 1999; Edgren 1999; Clark, Chandler and Barry 1999; Berg 2001). The paper accordingly extends existing research by conceptualising areas of academic responsibility along the following dimensions: dog work, tough work, care work, real work and nice work respectively, in order to explore the changing character of intellectual labour and the gendered implications.Undervalued in relation to other areas of intellectual labour administrative or dog work has always been the province of academics, especially during their early years in the job when they take their turn as others before them. Recent years have seen a growth in routinised tasks with increasing bureaucratisation and seemingly endless paper trails attending peer review of quality audits as trust in professional discretion recedes (Power 1997). Increasingly administration is delegated to junior colleagues and administrators (or student support managers), often women. Organising the work of professional colleagues has likewise traditionally been the province of academics. Arranging timetables and 'persuading' colleagues to undertake heavy teaching loads and committee work has always been difficult and burdensome for those responsible. This tough work has recently been on the increase as Heads of Department, now seen as middle managers, are exhorted to manage the work of their junior colleagues, delegating academic leadership as necessary (Jarrett 1985). Where enacted in hard or brutal ways the gendered element of tough work becomes clear (Gilligan 1982; Rosener 1990; White 1995).Care work has been thought traditionally to be a significant factor in supporting students at university and reducing the wastage rates associated with systems of mass higher education (Halsey 1995). The pressures to massify into a New Higher Education system (Parker and Jary 1995) appear to have had a deleterious effect with those most affected being women, both as tutors and students (Cotterill and Waterhouse 1998). These are the staff forced to deal with the harder realities of daily life on campus for the newly (dis)possessed student 'customers'. Real work has historically characterised the role of academic labour, as lecturers seek to develop the spirit of intellectual enquiry and joy of learning in their students. In the face of attempts to speed up academic production, and make the job harder (Morley 1999:166), intellectual workers resist through trade union action, collegial support for one another and control of working patterns, taking work home where they can at least manage their time to some degree, and maintaining responsibility for content of lectures, seminars and tutorials as numbers grow. Here the greatest number of hours are invariably worked by the most junior lecturing staff who are women. Nice work on the other hand has offered sanctuary, an escape route to the pleasures of reflection where independence remains intact. And it is here too that men outnumber women in senior research positions. Whilst there may exist illusion in the dream of independence, as pressure for published output and income generation through research grants grows and makes the work much harder than it was before, it remains nice work if you can get it, perhaps the final refuge of beleaguered, predominantly male, academics keen to maintain professional autonomy. And it here that women are excluded - not just in Sweden and England but in many other countries around the world (Clark, Barry and Chandler 1998:209).The data for the paper derives from a series of in-depth interviews with female and male academics in middle management positions in Sweden and England in order to give voice to their experience of these recent changes.
