New Languages and Landscapes of Higher Education

Thursday, 04 May 2017

It is our pleasure to invite you to an afternoon seminar at the Society for Research into Higher Education entitled: New Languages and Landscapes of Higher Education.

The seminar will conclude with a drinks reception and a formal launch of the new book on which the seminar is based.

This seminar will be introduced by Professor Sir Peter Scott and feature contributions from Professor Jim Gallacher and Professor Gareth Parry with a response from Professor Mary Stuart.

 The landscapes of higher education have been changing rapidly, with enormous growths in participation rates in many countries across the world and major developments and changes within institutions. The language needed to conceptualise and understand these changes have not been keeping pace. This seminar will address these issues and be of interest to academics and students in the field of higher education studies, including historians, economists and sociologists.


15.30 -16.00:  Refreshments served

16.00-17.45:  Seminar: 'New Languages and Landscapes of Higher Education’

Introduced by Professor Sir Peter Scott with contributions from Professor Jim Gallacher and Professor Gareth Parry and                            ‘response’ from Professor Mary Stuart.
