Thinking about Academic Judgement



Academics often find themselves judging others' ideas. This event aims to question the nature of academic judgement and its normalisation.


About this event Academic judgement is a major part of sociologists’ working lives. Whether it is through the peer review processes associated with journal articles, book proposals, chapters, grants, promotion and reward cases, on interview panels, or in exercises such as the UK’s Research Excellence Framework, as academics we very often find ourselves judging the ideas of others or having our own ideas judged.

This event seeks to question the nature of academic judgement, its basis, and its normalisation in the discipline. Bringing together three discussants, the event will offer collegiate discussion of academic judgement, what it is, and some of the implications of its operation in academic life.
