Global University Rankings and the Politics of Knowledge

Faculty Published Work

Barron, G. R.S. (2021). University Rankings As Global Surveillance Assemblage. In M. Stack, C. P. Chou, A. Mazawi, & M. Ishikawa (Eds.), Global University Rankings and the Politics of Knowledge. University of Toronto Press. http://hdl.handle.net/2429/78483

Conceptually unique in its scope, Global University Rankings and the Politics of Knowledge 解决大学和期刊排名系统背后缺乏实证研究的问题. 国际公认的学者在非殖民研究的章节为读者提供了强大的框架,以理解殖民和土著的交叉,以及他们如何在高等教育中发挥作用.

在这一章中,我要为我们这些重视大学排名的人阐明一个问题, metrics, and their politics to be undesirable, or perhaps even destructive to our freedoms to choose what research we conduct, where we publish, how our universities are governed, and to have valid information to make personal and governmental policy decisions. Yet, 排名是学术历史和文化的一部分,也是政府或商业监督和创造利润的工具. 问题在于:排名之间的物质和文化关系使它们同时具有吸引力, coercive, and profane to academics that are not only subject to them, but whose very work feeds their production. That is, they are not only embedded within long standing academic practices and interests, they are increasingly integrated into routine ways of knowing, thinking about, and recognizing legitimate universities and academic work. 大学与排名的纠缠使得没有排名的世界看起来不可想象. 在本章中,我将在行动者-网络理论中阐明排名,并解释这一观点对排名之间连接的含义, metrics, 而大学生活需要个人和集体的反思来激发人们对其他价值观的思考, ethics, and means of recognition might be possible. Rather than presume to know what alternative values and interests are best, I simply outline the current state of affairs and, in so doing, intimate points of departure.
