Item Type: Article
Additional Information: This is a paper in a high-quality, refereed, international journal. It is a theoretical/analytic piece which was the second most downloaded paper from this journal during the year of publication and which is now very extensively quoted and referenced in education, policy and sociological literature, with 30,000 internet search "hits' and 1570 citations on google scholar. It draws on the work of Lyotard and Foucault to develop a analytical framework for the interpretation and understanding of the processes and effects of performativity in contemporary institutions and argues that performativity both internalises control and competition and changes the nature of profession practice and the meaning of practice. This is a paper of high significance.
