The effects of world rankings, accreditation and evaluation: status, excellence and polarization.

Third roundtable of the international workshop, Globalizations of Higher Education and Research, May 29-30, 2018, University Paris 5 Descartes

May 30, 9:30 – 13:00

Rankings and other instruments used for evaluating higher education and research produce a quantitative representation of university. This fuels a cognitive map adapted for consumers of higher education – and for their lenders – as well as for investors. We’ll also address its effect on academics work and management. Finally, the proximity between the normalization necessary to produce quantitative representations and the abstraction typical of commodity-fetishism will be discussed.
