Work, unemployment, and leisure by Rosemary Deem( )

18 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 1,607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosemary Deem provides students with a concise introduction to a range of issues and debates surrounding work, unemployment and leisure in contemporary societies. Beginning with an examination of the social and historical factors which have shaped work and leisure patterns in modern Britain, she shows how the boundaries between them are culturally constructed and change over time. As well as looking at the effects of class, Work, Unemployment and Leisure also considers gender, race and ethnicity dimensions. The author takes a wide view of work, encompassing work carried out both within and outside the formal economy. The chapter on unemployment considers the lives of those who are unemployed, and the impact of unemployment on work and leisure. There is a critical analysis of leisure itself and some recent controversies are considered. The final chapter contains a discussion of the future of work and leisure in industrial societies

Schooling for women's work by Rosemary Deem( Book )

20 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bundeling van artikels over de discriminatie van vrouwen in het Britse onderwijssysteem (in 1980), ondanks het bestaan van een wetgeving die zulke discriminatie verbiedt en ondanks de vele gelijke-kansen-acties op school. Men toont aan hoe de seksestereotypen nog steeds bestaan in basis- en secundair onderwijs en hoe de scholen nog steeds meisjes voorbereiden op huishoudelijke arbeid of op een klein aantal vrouw-gedomineerde beroepen en welke neerslag dit alles heeft op de arbeidsmarktpositie van vrouwen en op het in stand houden van de patriarchale samenleving

21 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the issues that academics now face as a result of these changes, both as the 'knowledge-workers' managed, and the 'manager-academic'. It draws on a detailed study of academics holding management roles ranging from Head of Department to Vice Chancellor in sixteen UK universities, exploring their career histories and trajectories, and providing extensive accounts of their values, practices, relationships with others, and their training and development as managers." "The book will be of interest to all teaching, researching, or managing in Higher Education, Education policy-makers, and academics and researchers concerned with Public Management, Knowledge Management, or Higher Education."--Jacket

15 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of the Contemporary British Society is the only textbook to provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the social structure of modern Britain. Completely revised and updated, this new edition employs the very latest statistical information and empirical studies, and examines all the new arguments and debates concerning modern British society." "Separate chapters explore the major areas of modern life in Britain - economic organization, employment, patterns of inequality, class, gender, ethnicity, family and households, education, health, media, deviance and politics. New to this edition are chapters on globalization, associations, and leisure." "The emphasis throughout the book is on an accessible, user-friendly, and non-technical approach. It is written in a jargon-free and approachable style; there is extensive cross-referencing and frequent and clear summarizing of arguments; and numerous photographs, diagrams, graphs, drawings and cartoons complement and illuminate the text." "Contemporary British Society is written for students of introductory sociology whether they are taking 'A' level or are in the first year of an undergraduate course in a higher education institution. It will also be useful for those taking courses in other subjects, such as social policy, health and town planning, which demand knowledge of particular aspects of British society."--Jacket

The university as a critical institution?( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether universities can survive as critical organisations in the current time is an open question which this volume seeks to address. The book examines particular aspects of three main themes: governance, critical regulation and regulated criticism; growth, equality, movement and instability in higher education systems; and teaching and learning. Topics range from "University Futures" to an examination of governance by procedure and the loss of the social process of the university; a discussion of the meaning of academic freedom; and approaches to managerialism. Quality management is discussed, along with the question of whether European Liberal Education actually exists. Various aspects of the theme of teaching and learning are examined, from student participation in out-of-class activities, to the role of Centres of Excellence, and a consideration of widening participation. The book is international in its reach, and addresses the continuing dilemmas faced in higher education systems, within Europe and beyond
Active citizenship and the governing of schools by Rosemary Deem( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book examines whether educational reforms are attributable to 'new right' ideologies or to broader notions of 'new managerialism', before looking critically at concepts of active citizenship, what constitutes lay administration of schools, and the knowledge resources drawn upon by lay school governors. Careful attention is paid to issues of class, gender and ethnicity, and the voices of both governors and teachers are heard throughout. The book will be relevant to anyone concerned with critical public policy, the governance and management of schools and/or educational reform, including school governors, teachers and headteachers, policy makers and politicians. All three authors are experienced school governors
Excellence, reform, and equity in education : an international perspective by Rosemary Deem( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five papers presented in this monograph deal with the implications of the criticisms of education and the calls for excellence now evident in a number of industrialized nations. While the issues discussed vary, there is a common concern to understand how current changes in educational policy may affect educational practice. "Women, Educational Reform, and the Process of Change" (Rosemary Deem) considers some of the attempts that have been made in Britain to reduce the amount of sexism in education, to offer better and fairer educational routes and experiences for girls, and to decrease gender inequalities within schools. "In/Forming Schooling: Space/Time/Textuality in Cumpulsory State Provided 'Mass' Schooling Systems" (Phillip Corrigan) raises questions against certain dominant forms of theorizing, investigating, and explaining schooling. "The Political Economy of Text Publishing" (Michael Apple) analyzes the production of curricular materials from the perspective of cultural commodities production and consumption. "Parents, Children, and the State" (Miriam E. David) argues that the New Right government in Britain, much like that of the United States, is subtly constructing public economic, social, and educational policies that will radically alter the place of family in the socio-economic system. "Public Education and the Discourse of Crisis, Power, and Vision" (Henry Giroux) argues that public education in the United States faces a dual crisis: a neo-conservative threat to all public spheres and a failure of radical educational discourse to either illuminate the nature of the existing failures of American education or to provide a theoretical discourse for educational reform.

Schooling for Women's Work (RLE Edu F) by Rosemary Deem( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original papers shows how women in Britain are still being discriminated against during schooling, despite the existence of legislation prohibiting such discrimination and despite apparent concern with promoting equality between the sexes in education. Focusing on the current situation and experiences of women in education and their subsequent entry to, and experiences of, the labour market, the book shows how the category of gender is made relevant in the education of women: how it is influential in structuring their actions, beliefs, values and life chances, and how it

Rosemary Deem also looks at how these institutions differentiate the socialization, culture and education of girls from that of boys, and considers the implications
