Neoliberal higher education and nursing scholarship: power, subjectification, threats and resistance

Alec Grant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Critique of neoliberalised higher education, with an emphasis on nursing scholarship. As a narrative scholar, I represent and hopefully role model critical reflexive scholarship in the social and human sciences and in nursing and mental health nursing (e.g.Grant, 2013). Along with colleagues in my own and other universities internationally (e.g.Shields et al., 2012), I hold that critical thinking, in the form of grappling with the political, thus policy, shaping contexts of knowledge over and above simply knowledge content, should form the core of nursing education, research and, by implication, practice.
