Hegemonic practices and knowledge production in the management academy: An English language perspective
Summary This research note investigates the role of the English language as part of tacit, institutionalised practices in academia, specifically in management academe. It is argued that the generation and dissemination of knowledge occur increasingly, almost exclusively, in and through the English language, which is seen as perpetuating particular hegemonic patterns of knowledge production. We report on some empirical works which have begun to explore the processes surrounding knowledge production inclusive of a language perspective and on this basis future directions for research are suggested.
