Key findings from an attitudinal study of academic staff in the humanities and social sciences

This seminar will provide key findings from an online study of academic staff in the humanities and social sciences of New Zealand universities. The humanities and social sciences are defined primarily as covered by the PBRF panels: Social Sciences, Humanities and Law, Education, and Maori and Pacific. The study is an attempt at a census and all 1770 staff identified as belonging to the humanities and social sciences were invited to take part. There were 492 participants. The study reproduces a mail-based approach in 2004 (Curtis and Matthewman, 2005).
