Abstract:
UK academe has been frequently reported as being a male-dominated space where cultures and practices persistently discriminate against women reaching the higher echelons of the profession (Knights and Richards, 2003). My research is concerned with one important aspect of higher education - its predominant research culture - and asks whether increased use of Internet technologies is disrupting the research culture's traditional androcentric structures, values, interactions, identities and practices, to create more of a level playing field for male and female academics working in UK higher education institutions.
