Beyond 'Entrepreneurialism of the Self': What it Means to be a Student in the Neoliberal University

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


As market forces and market mechanisms increasingly reframe the work of the university, the concept of 'entrepreneurialsm of the self' is useful in examining certain student practices associated with the neoliberal university. However, the chapter goes on to argue that such entrepreneurialsm does not totally define student identities within which these practices coexist with practices which resist neoliberalism's imposition of market logic on Higher Education.
