Mapping Mental Health in the UK University Sector: Network Analysis, Discourses, and Analytics Markets

Thursday 29 April 2021, 2.30PM to 4.30pm

Speaker(s): Dimitra Kotouza of the University of Lincoln

First, I discuss how we have combined network analysis and discourse analysis to identify policy assemblages (comprising social actors, institutions, technologies, knowledges and discourses) through which the problem of ‘mental health’ is constructed and addressed.

Second, I focus on the latest emerging market that enacts these policies, learning analytics for mental health. The latter enables policy agendas to seep through from the higher levels of governance, aiming to reduce the costs of social reproduction, down to the everyday level of individual students who are encouraged to monitor, rehabilitate and enhance themselves as employable subjects.
