Book Excerpt :

A Guide to Academia is a handbook for all those individuals thinking seriously about going to graduate school. Written by an author with extensive experience navigating the academic world, the book explains all the steps and potential bumps in the road that a student might encounter as they take the plunge into academia. Each chapter begins with a section called the "hard truth," which will help students determine if they are on the right path. Starting with an undergraduate student looking for a graduate school, the reader is taken on a journey up the academic ladder through graduate studies, a postdoctoral fellowship and an assistant professorship. Each chapter gives advice on not only how to survive the current stage but how to get to the next stage quickly. Enhanced with material from the author's own job applications and interview presentations, A Guide to Academia provides concrete examples of the tools needed for a successful career in academia.

Book Short Summary:

Social media and online social networks are expected to transform academia and the scholarly process. However, intense emotions permeate scholars’ online practices and an increasing number of academics are finding themselves in trouble in networked spaces. In reality, the evidence describing scholars’ experiences in online social networks and social media is fragmented. As a result, the ways that social media are used and experienced by scholars are not well understood. Social Media in Academia examines the day-to-day realities of social media and online networks for scholarship and illuminates the opportunities, tensions, conflicts, and inequities that exist in these spaces. The book concludes with suggestions for institutions, individual scholars, and doctoral students regarding online participation, social media, networked practice, and public scholarship.

Book Short Summary:

Argues that institutional change must accommodate women’s professional and personal life stages. Staging Women’s Lives in Academia demonstrates how ostensibly personal decisions are shaped by institutions and advocates for ways that workplaces, not women, must be changed. Addressing life stages ranging from graduate school through retirement, these essays represent a gamut of institutions and women who draw upon both personal experience and scholarly expertise. The contributors contemplate the slipperiness of the very categories we construct to explain the stages of life and ask key questions, such as what does it mean to be a graduate student at fifty? Or a full professor at thirty-five? The book explores the ways women in all stages of academia feel that they are always too young or too old, too attentive to work or too overly focused on family. By including the voices of those who leave, as well as those who stay, this collection signals the need to rebuild the house of academia so that women can have not only classrooms of their own but also lives of their own.

Book Short Summary:

A Nomad in Academia: A Reflective Account of an Academic’s Experience Across the Continents is the autobiographical account of Mohammed Abdur Razzaque, who was born in East Bengal, now called Bangladesh. His inspiring and insightful story begins in 1968 and continues up to 2014. He left his homeland, East Pakistan, to study in the United States, and from there, has travelled and taught at universities throughout the world. He has experienced many cultures and wishes to share the insights gathered during his forty-three-year teaching career. In 1968, he reluctantly began his career as a metallurgical engineer in a steel mill. At the first available opportunity he quit the job and proceeded to the United States to pursue higher studies in business administration. The author returned to his home country of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) as a university teacher in 1971, but left Bangladesh again in 1976. He says, “Since 1976, I have taught in universities in the Sudan, Singapore, Bangladesh, USA and Australia. For very short periods, I was also associated with universities in Finland, Malaysia, and UAE. I have received several teaching excellence awards, in 2007, 2009, and 2010.” A Nomad in Academia narrates the story of a young country boy who aspired to become a civil servant in his home country of East Pakistan, now called Bangladesh, but ended up being a marketing educator in a prestigious Australian university. It describes how he was forced to become an engineer, but then quit the profession to become a business teacher in several countries on different continents. It presents a fascinating account of his transformation as an academic, his experiences in various countries, and his interpretation of some of the events he witnessed during his forty-plus year teaching career.

The End of the Modernist Era in Arts and Academia

  • Pdf File: the-end-of-the-modernist-era-in-arts-and-academia.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book identifies the—now moribund—Modernist spirit of the twentieth century, with its "make it new" attitude in the arts, and its tendency towards abstraction and the scientific process, as the impetus behind the academic structures of universities and museums, together with the development of discrete scholarly disciplines such as literary theory, sociology, and art history based on quasi-scientific principles. Arguing that the Modernist project is approaching exhaustion and that the insights that it has left to yield are approaching triviality, it explores the Modernist links between the arts and academic pursuits of the West—and their relationship with street protests—in the long twentieth century, considering what might follow this Modernist era. An examination of the broad cultural and intellectual—and now political—trends of our age, and their decline, The End of the Modernist Era in Arts and Academia will appeal to scholars and students of social theory, philosophy, literary studies, and cultural studies.

Book Short Summary:

For virtually all of the 20th century, the paradigm in marketing was founded on early economic thoughts, making goods and exchanges the focal point of economic research and practice. In the 1980s and 1990s, scholars called for a paradigm shift, but did not deliver clear directives on how to move forward. It was not before 2004 when Stephen L. Vargo and Robert F. Lusch published their award-winning article Evolving to a New Dominant Logic for Marketing in the Journal of Marketing, dealing with a potentially new paradigm for marketing. The publication has caused a lot of discussions, crowned by a collection of essays from more than 50 scholars in 2006. This book aims at looking into the reactions and discussions regarding the proposed service-dominant logic in more detail. So far, no comprehensive overview of the existing literature has yet been made. This book will introduce the basic ideas of the service-dominant logic, followed by a detailed state-of-literature. The last part of the book will examine whether the concepts of a service-dominant logic display similarities with concepts of B2B marketing and whether they could successfully be adopted in B2B markets.
