Rethinking Private Higher Education
Ethnographic Perspectives
In-depth ethnographic studies of universities as rapidly evolving, key contemporary institutions, interrogating in particular the fast-growing private sector
Rethinking Private Higher Education takes the university as a core, yet changing, institution in modern nation states. It offers fresh insights into the actual meaning of ‘private’ in different university contexts, contributing to a deeper understanding of global policies in specific localities through ethnographies. Essays explore how private universities were established, their context and history, and their changing business models.
