Academe Degree Zero brings together ten essays that identify and critically examine the key issues facing professionals in higher education today. These include the nature and limits of anonymity in academic discourse, the ways in which affiliation and prestige temper academic judgement, and the role of collegiality in academic life.
Through numerous essays, edited books and journal issues, Jeffrey R. Di Leo's cross-disciplinary work has consistently been at the edge of current thinking and critical efforts to lay bare the reality of contemporary academic life.
Academe Degree Zero provides a snapshot of academic identity and relations in a time of major technological and economic transformation and in the context of growing corporatisation of higher education.
