Dr

Peter Woelert

 


I am a Senior Lecturer at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne, with a background in philosophy (PhD, University of New South Wales) and sociology (M.A., University of Frankfurt, Germany).

My research focuses on exploring governance and organizational dynamics in the university sector.

I have researched and published on issues such as universities’ internal responses to national funding settings, the politics of research performance measurement, universities’ organizational autonomy, and the unintended effects of large-scale policy and governance reform on institutional diversity. More recently, I have developed a growing research interest in novel forms and dynamics of bureaucratization within universities.

I also have a longstanding research interest in the sociology of organizations more broadly.
