The purpose of the stream is to help advance our understanding of how the current changes in the development of scientific excellence, gender equality and the significant changes in academic governance mutually shape and produce new ways of working, knowing and living in academia. We invite submissions from the international research community that can help create theoretically informed, multidisciplinary understandings of the issues affecting the structural and cultural meanings of academic governance with respect to science policies, scientific work and careers, knowledge production and organizational practices. Contributions are welcome in any of the following or related themes :
Science policies – research that investigates gender equality and/or excellence in policy making on national and international levels and the translation of the policy measures to universities and other scientific organizations.
Science organizations and organizing science - research that investigates organizational practices of performing or resisting the major developments towards competition, managerialism, enhancing scientific excellence and fostering gender equality.
Scientific work and careers – research that investigates the structuring, meaning and changing of academic labour on all career levels within scientific organizations.
Scientific knowledge production - research that investigates the meaning of gender, also in combination with other inequalities, in the knowledge production and delivering process.
