Academic Working Lives examines the ways in which lecturers and their roles have developed in the modern academic workplace. The book offers insights into changing occupational roles, institutions and the adaptations around flexible and mobile working in everyday professional life. The editors have drawn together an impressive range of research perspectives and themed topics that cover the key aspects of academic professional identity and relationships, as well as reflecting experiences of learning and development at work in today's academy. The contributors explore lecturers' everyday working experiences in the light of the impact of policy changes, and the modes of academic leadership and management in contemporary higher education. Contributions reflect situations and contexts from across the UK and internationally, in taking account of the changing workforce, evolving pedagogies and new technologies in the working lives of today's educational professionals.

I recommend this fascinating book which reports wide-ranging research into the 'how', 'when', 'where' and 'who' of academic working lives in higher and further education. Amongst many insightful contributors, Ron Barnett deserves special mention for his chapter which addresses the 'why' of our workplace, suggesting that pessimists adhere to the perceived inevitable while optimists build change through the interstices of academic life. * Virginia King, Visiting Lecturer in Academic Practice, Coventry University, UK * The book unveils academic practices that are often hidden even for academics themselves. Established authors in the field brilliantly describe how tacit and informal aspects of academic working lives are actually the core essence of being an academic in the 21st century. After reading the book you start to observe your everyday working routines differently, making the invisible visible. * Jani Ursin, Senior Researcher, University of Jyvaskyla, Finland * The contributors to this collection are at different stages in their careers and demonstrate perspective based on experience and contribution based on aspirations. Importantly insights are made about our working lives as a practice, with research and commentary about the realities of doing the job in dark times. While there is much to be concerned about I finished the book with a sense of optimism about the ability of ourselves to interrogate our work and to challenge prevailing orthodoxies. * Helen Gunter, Professor of Education Policy Management, University of Manchester, UK *
