Working paper

Университет как корпорация: интеллектуальная картография исследова­тельских подходов

The paper aims to analyze the current state of University Studies explicating and mapping the existing approaches as well as highlighting the undeveloped areas. This intellectual revision is led by the anthropological perspective developed in historical study of Russian university and focused on the academic community as a creator of academic culture, the active interpreter of the established institutional frames of the university (elaborated and imposed by the state). The text emphasizes the long-time priority of macro-perspective in the field of University Studies (including structural functionalism, neo Weberian and Bourdieu approaches). Overcoming the restrictions of the macro-perspective, the anthropological approach allows to personalize and contextualize university, to focus on the academic community building, its self-regulation, autonomy and interaction with social environment as well as on the language of academia self-description.
