CFP: Students in Changing Higher Education Landscapes

*Call For Papers: Students in Changing Higher Education Landscapes One-day
conference at the University of Surrey, UK on Friday, 14th June 2019*
Across many countries of the world, higher education landscapes have
changed significantly over recent years. Market mechanisms have become more
prominent, and politicians have become increasingly concerned about
graduates’ transitions into the labour market. In some nations, although
not all, students are now expected to make a substantial contribution to
the cost of their higher education and, across mainland Europe, the Bologna
Process has reshaped the nature of students’ experiences considerably. This
one-day conference seeks to explore understandings of students in this
shifting context.

We welcome papers – focusing on the UK, mainland Europe or further afield
– that cover any aspect of the topic, including (but not restricted to) the
following: representations of students in policy or media; the nature of
students’ lives; staff understandings of students; staff-student
relationships; students as consumers; students as political actors; student
mobilities; comparative studies of students; and the impact on students’
experiences of their social characteristics, discipline of study and/or

We hope to include papers from all career stages and a variety of
disciplinary backgrounds. It is intended that the papers will provide the
basis for a proposal for a journal special issue.
