<br>>
<br>> For many generations universities have been institutions of higher
<br>> education and research. Now they are expected to contribute to local and
<br>> global economies by commercializing research and spurring innovation, while
<br>> addressing grand social challenges like climate mitigation and social
<br>> disparities. They also must engage successfully in mass higher education
<br>> and outreach with a variety of publics. This means that universities now
<br>> occupy a strategic place in re/shaping society by circulating research and
<br>> knowledge through teaching and professional expertise. Meanwhile,
<br>> universities have become subject to increased auditing practices and
<br>> austerity policies, locally and globally. Many universities turn to experts
<br>> in branding and commodification for strategies in defining and representing
<br>> their work as successful.
<br>>
<br>> STS provides resources for understanding such dis/continuities in the
<br>> making and circulation of knowledge while the study of universities in
<br>> dynamic ecologies is vital to addressing unexamined assumptions in STS
<br>> about the relationship between research, teaching, and society, as well as
<br>> the governance of that relationship. We invite papers that address how
<br>> universities engage with the changing:
<br>>
<br>> - fragility and resilience of university cultures.
<br>>
<br>> - demands for rapid intellectual, social, and economic contributions to
<br>> society;
<br>>
<br>> - work life and agency of academics
<br>>
<br>> - relationship between teaching, research, innovation, and outreach;
<br>> - use of social media and branding practices by universities;
<br>>
<br>> - intersectional issues in knowledge making, teaching, outreach, funding,
<br>> and society;
<br>>
<br>> - political economies of research, teaching, funding, and outreach;
<br>>
<br>> - *campus infrastructures from software* & budgets to buildings &
<br>> transportation;
<br>>
<br>> - increasingly complex webs of relationships among universities glocally
<br>> through rankings, MOUs, satellite campuses, academic mobilities, etc.
<br>>
<br>>          The organizers are co-authors of *Questing Excellence: Tales of
<br>> Two Universities* (under contract with Routledge).
<br>>

<br>> contributions to specific aspects of the panel topic in in 250 words or
