University-society collaboration on the agenda: The rhetoric of expectations
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Stockholm Centre for Organizational Research (SCORE).
2017 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper aims to contribute to the knowledge on how the concept of ‘collaboration’ is being

produced and reproduced – and filled with meaning – as it is articulated in news content and

opinion articles about the organisation of knowledge production within higher education in

Sweden. We build on a textual analysis on the public discussion in the aftermath of the

announcement of the research policy bill “Knowledge in collaboration” (Prop 2016/17:50)

and take as a point of departure that social phenomena are constructed and given meaning

through talk and texts. Our analysis shows that the concept ‘collaboration’ carry certain

expectations and values concerning the organisation of knowledge production, and highlights

that these ideas are not only polarised among actor groups, as well as within groups, but also

contain political ambitions. The concept of collaboration can be interpreted as an idea that

provides universities with prescriptions and guidelines for how to do their everyday work –

what kinds of activity is valued and appropriated and what is downplayed and over time

maybe even sorted out.
