The 21st century workplace is very different from that of the last century. Academia, having undergone dramatic changes of its own in recent decades, is also subject to broader social changes. With life expectancy increasing, the default retirement age has been lifted; there are more women than ever in the UK workforce; and thanks to new techology and globalisation, even the physical boundaries of the workplace are shifting. What does all this mean for careers in higher education? Are these changes all for the better, or might academic life be getting harder?

The debate will be followed by a networking reception.
