Summary This chapter examines the ‘gendered nature of the social organisation of researchand scientific knowledge production’ and in particular the gendered nature ofthe corporatisation of higher education (Knorr-Cetina 1999, 9). It argues that theconditions of labour of the entrepreneurial university and underlying market-oriented instrumentalism has changed the nature of the relationship of highereducation with the public, with the individual student and the academic, inways that are gendered. ‘Markets do not make social distinctions disappear,they regulate interaction between institutions e.g. families and education, and“instrumentalist” status distinctions, bending pre-existing cultural value tocapitalist purposes’ (Fraser and Honneth 1998, 58). The dominant neoliberalpolicy ‘doxa’, with its economistic view of higher education in relation to theknowledge economy, is an ideology which shapes a range of constantly changingdiscursive and material practices (Epstein et al. 2008). This is ‘not so much a“new” form of liberal government, but rather a hybrid or intensified form of it’that works through and on subjectivities that are racialised, gendered, classedand sexualised (Bansel et al. 2008, 673).
