Academic's Support Kit by Rebecca Boden

Book Description

'Thanks for the brilliance, wisdom and humour of Boden, Epstein and Kenway. I will buy this KIT for all of my students, as they leave graduate school and venture into university life on their own. The Academic's Support Kit provides a virtual support group for young academics groping to find their way in the rapidly changing terrain of higher education. And there are some tips for those of us who have been around too long, as well' -Michelle Fine, The City University of New York 'Comprehensive and comprehendible information, alongside sensible, practical strategies and exercises, that I will be able to employ when developing my own academic career and to facilitate my staff development and peer mentoring work' - Sandra Sinfield, London Metropolitan University 'The Kit is excellent. And it is not just for academic starters either. This is a collection of books which every academic could refer to confident that she or he will benefit from the experiences shared, the perspectives offered and the advice given' - Robert Morrell, University of KwaZulu-Natal 'This is an eminently practical guide to getting ahead as a university academic employee' - Clive Seale, Brunel University 'The ASK Box would be a useful addition to the bookshelves of any research group or teaching team with new and developing researchers. It would be helpful for any department wanting to support its members in the development of their careers. It would also be useful for any senior institutional manager (who may have been an academic themselves) as a reminder of what they as established academics may have forgotten - the complex. Competitive and increasingly tortuous process of becoming an academic.' - Educate The Academic's Support Kit is a unique resource that provides all the information, skills and guidance to support academic professional development.

Author Biography - Rebecca Boden

I work at the nexus of sociology and cultural studies and my research interests comprise childhood and youth studies, particularly sexuality, gender and race in education and in popular culture, and the cultural politics of education. Overall, my focus is on the dominant and how it is held in place, though this often involves investigating the experiences of those in subordinated, marginalised and/or stigmatised groups. I am especially concerned with how children negotiate these 'differences that make a difference' and their agency in the context of institutional settings such as schools and families. Research interests Education policy particularly in relation to globalisation and socio-cultural change Socio-cultural studies of diverse youthful identities and education Education, media and consumer cultures Elite Schools around the world and the formation of transnational elites Fields of Research (FOR) Higher Education Gender, Sexuality and Education Education Policy Sociology of Education
