  • Slow University

    30 June 2017

    University of Maynooth, MUSSI. June 2017

    This MUSSI seminar/panel discussion chaired by  Prof. Linda Connolly explored how dialogues within and outwith the Higher Education sector are converging  around  the need for a socio-cultural shift towards slowing down the pace of work, life and consumption, improving well-being  and providing counter narratives  to processes of globalisation and the  ‘Gridlock’ that Hale, Held and Young (2013) write about. 

    The motivation for organising the seminars emerged from dialogue with colleagues, our biographical experiences and resistance  to the speeding up of Higher Education, the impact of the audit culture and ‘marketisation’; as well as growing pressures, for some, in relation to developing a work/life balance in the context of metrics, audit, efficiency, increased competition,  demand management of research grant generation and the importance of hitting performance targets for career development and promotion. The gendered dimensions of these issues have been central to these discussions. A networking reception followed the discussion.

    Maggie O'Neill opened the seminar  with a paper on Work, Time and Well-being and this was followed by responses from Prof. Gerry Kearns Dr Mary Murphy and Prof. Sharon Todd.
