The Contours of Gendered Academic Citizenship

This chapter argues that the framework of Gendered Academic Citizenship is well-equipped to capture the multi-dimensional and complex dynamics of power relations and everyday practices in the contemporary context of academic capitalism. The Chapter starts with a brief review of the earlier contributions to the gendering of the citizenship concept. Differentiating between three analytically distinct but interrelated levels of analysis (the systemic, organisational and individual/interactional), the chapter reviews a selection of literature on gendered processes in academia. The novel conceptualisation of Gendered Academic Citizenship involves three key components (membership, recognition and belonging) and formulates four ideal-types of academic citizenship: Full citizenship, limited citizenship, transitional citizenship and non-citizenship.
