Joining the debate about the role of scholarship and research at American universities, this book examines such issues as postmodern concepts of scholarship, the impact of technology on scholarship, and the promoting of grant writing and scholarly publishing. Challenging the ideal of pure research and atheoretical teaching, contributors debate the impact of research-based graduate study and its faith in pure research on American scholarship, demonstrating how postmodern theories and social and economic problems are exploding the myth of disinterested research. The book also analyzes how academics could grapple with social, political, moral, and pedagogical issues, considers the impact of online databases and electronic journals, and explores the changes that could help faculty find their voices as scholars.
