22 SES 08 C, Academic Work and Professional Development
Parallel Paper Session
My research question engages with the issue of how a trajectory of research capacity emerges from the biographies of academically productive academics. In Britain and other European countries concern has been expressed about the quality and use-value of Education Research undertaken in university departments of education. In tandem with that concern a parallel anxiety exists about how to effectively build research capacity in Education Research which has been said to be comparatively weak as a social science compared with sociology and social anthropology. To investigate this set of connected issues I have utilised theories of social practice including those of Lave and Wenger, and also Bourdieu. In addition to characterise and identify types of research capacity and career trajectories I involve critical incident analysis the results of which I theorise in relation to the ideal type notion of Max Weber.
