This chapter provides an experientially based robust critique of the penetration of neoliberal ideologies into university management and professional practice. It discusses the role of professional identities in the individual, and collective, response to institutional micromanagement; and outlines the consequent distortions introduced into research practice. It explicitly calls into question the legitimacy of academic researchers’ claims to operate independently, and to be capable of fulsomely carrying out of their professional research obligations in the current university environment.

Keywords:   The commodification of knowledge, Micro-management of staff, Professional identities, Collusive denial of malaise
