ERG SES G10, Post-Graduate Education
This paper at hand is a joint paper of presenters from three countries: Michaela Mozna (Czech Republic); Edina Strikovic (USA); Franziska Teichmann (Germany) compare material orders and epistemic shifts in the academic field (Bourdieu). In our international comparison of structures in academic PhD education, we do not only compare the prevalent structures in PhD Education of the national systems of Czech Republic, USA and Germany, but discuss the epistemic shifts and underlying trends and changes within the global academic field.
It is clear that the Czech Republic is oriented towards a global framework and towards modernization, Germany is leaving its traditions of the Humboldtian University behind and shifting towards the American model of “doctoral programs” – and American structures in organizing the doctoral phase seem to become the dominant and global model – suitable for Europe, too. Comparing the changing systems and changing traditions, the underlying powerful shifts and the transformation of academia analyzed as academic field (Bourdieu 1992, 2004) become visible.
