Who is the ideal academic?

“This debate considers the constitution of the ideal academic in the contemporary university. Is the image of the ideal constant or has it changed to suit the prevailing mores of the 21st century? Is it still gendered or is it now imagined in neutral terms? Hear Professor Margaret Thornton speak on The Mirage of Merit: Constructing the ‘Ideal Academic’, and commentators Professor Ian Young, ANU Vice Chancellor, Professor Allison Booth, ANU College of Business & Economics, Professor Aidan Byrne, Dean, ANU College of Mathematics & Physical Sciences.”
