Quotation Günther, Elisabeth Anna. 2019. Teaching for E/Quality. Steps Towards a More Habitus-Sensible Academia. 33rd Annual British Academy of Management Conference, Birmingham, Großbritannien, 03.09.-05.09.




This developmental paper discusses a way to foster more equality within academia. To this end, first different facets of inequality within higher education are discussed and how they are interrelated. Second, the concept habitus-sensibility is introduced. Habitus-sensibility is a social practice of agents, in order to bridge the own vocational habitus and the habitus of the other such as different students. Third, different phases for engaging in a reflexive process to achieve habitus-sensibility are sketched out and illustrated discussing the concept of passion. This developmental paper contributes to the discussion of inequality within academia by looking at teaching and showing a way on how to overcome implicit discrimination.
