A senior lecturer in Human Resource Management at the University of South Wales will launch her insightful new book at the National Assembly for Wales next month.
Caryn Cook, pictured, who is based in the University’s Business School, has co-written the publication entitled ‘Academic Working Lives: Experience, Practice and Change’.
It will be launched at the iconic Senedd building in Cardiff Bay on 19th March. The event will be hosted by Christine Chapman AM, who has also contributed to the book.
‘Academic Working Lives’ offers an insight into changing occupational roles, institutions and the adaptations around flexible and mobile working in everyday professional life, and its launch will celebrate the publication of this major volume of work.
Inspired and based in Wales and involving collaboration across three universities, the book draws on the work of international scholars in the field as well as including contributions from new and emerging writers. The result is a detailed, behind the scenes look at working life across the UK, Canada, Japan, Finland and Ireland.
The launch event starts at 12noon on Wednesday 19th March. ‘Academic Working Lives: Experience, Practice and Change’ is published by Bloomsbury and is available now on Amazon.
