Event description

Description

The May East Midlands Salon is the East Midlands Book Launch of The Labour of Words in Higher Education: Is it time to reoccupy policy? when Professor Sarah Hayes (University of Wolverhampton) will introduce her new book which analyses the rhetoric of McPolicy that is disempowering academics.:

"As Higher Education has come to be valued for its direct contribution to the global economy, university policy discourse has reinforced this rationale. In The Labour of Words in Higher Education: Is it Time to Reoccupy Policy? two globes are depicted. One is a beautiful, but complete artefact, that markets a UK university. The second sits on a European city street and is continually inscribed with the markings of passers-by. A distinction is drawn between the rhetoric of university McPolicy, as a discourse that appears to no longer require input from humans, and a more authentic approach to writing policy, that acknowledges the academic labour of staff and students, in effecting change."
