Abstract

In this paper, we reflect upon the ways in which academic lives have, and continue to be, stretched and blurred within and across temporal and spatial boundaries and the implications this has for academic working practices and academic identity. The emergent themes discussed are drawn from two longitudinal studies being conducted in the UK higher education sector. The first involves an in-depth ethnographic study of location-independent working practices (LIW), and the second a qualitative study exploring the experiences of part-time and full-time doctoral students. Preliminary findings suggest this has lead academics to adopt working practices aimed at ameliorating contradictory organisational, professional and temporal demands in an attempt to reconcile conflicting priorities and multiple identities.
