The first question is addressed through an analysis of managerialism in light of the history and norms of academic work. The second question is addressed through an interview-based qualitative study of how academics react to managerialism. Drawing on theoretical concepts like resistance, organizational misbehavior, gaming and functional stupidity, the author develops a set of academic reactions to managerialism.

By addressing these issues, the PhD thesis contributes to the knowledge on academic work in the 21st century, with a special emphasis on how members of faculty react to contemporary developments in the management of universities.
