    Changing higher education by converging policy-packages: Education choices and student identities2014In: European Journal of Higher Education, ISSN 2156-8235, E-ISSN 2156-8243, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 67-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The past two decades of higher education research in Europe describe new-managerial and neo-liberal turns in governance policies that have brought shifts in the way institutions of higher education are defined and run, justify their existence and practices, and recruit and educate students. The expansion of higher education is often lifted as a key feature and motivation of these changes and it is also used in arguments for the need to change further. The European Union Lisbon Agreement is often referenced when changes are discussed and motivated by change agents. It describes needs of effectiveness and new kinds of programmes and courses to deal with increased volume and widening participation. New demands are described as having been placed on teachers, students and leadership, including an expanded role for student choices of and in higher education. Based on ethnographic research key aspects of extended choice are examined in the present article. Keywords: cultural capital, choice rationalities, skilled/semi-skilled choices, generification

    Re-purposing fika: rest, recreation or regulation in the neoliberalized Swedish University?2018In: European Journal of Higher Education, ISSN 2156-8235, E-ISSN 2156-8243, ISSN 2156-8235, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fika is the Swedish practice of assembling for a coffee break at work or home. This paper investigates the material, social and temporal investments in fika in accelerated and accountable organizational cultures, and asks what purpose it serves in neoliberalised academic employment regimes today. Analysis of our thirteen interviews with administrators and academics in a Faculty of Education in a large research-intensive Swedish university suggests that there are multiple interpretations of fika. Traditionally, fika has been used as a site for team-building, democratization, and well-being at work, but might have been re- purposed and incorporated in neoliberal surveillance and normalization technologies in which one’s corporate loyalty and interpersonal skills are made visible for assessment. We noted an affective and gendered economy with fika eliciting feelings of pleasure in the social and recreational aspects, but shame and anger at what was perceived as coercion to perform a particular type of sociable subjectivity.
