“A Metamorphosis of Sorts”: Exploring the Conceptualisation of Women’s Academic Identity in Australian Higher Education
MetadataShow full item record
My PhD research project explored how women within the Australian public higher education setting conceptualise their academic identities across three career stages (early, middle, and late). My research has assisted in developing an understanding of how women academics discussed their experiences within academia, the identities that they conceptualised, and how the discourses used by the women, as well as other academics, provided specific subject positions and/or opportunities to conceptualise identity within the academic context.
