Change In Culture Essay

This essay is motivated by concerns about an excessive competitive culture of research assessment in British academia. In Oriental cultures, interests are about the person. So often keenly asked questions are the personal ones such as “Who are you?" and “Where do you come from?" My narrative follows the motto of: via veritas vita, bridging Eastern and Western cultures. It is not evidence-based but is a reflective personal account of a journey of engagement in academic research ethos. The reader will appreciate that the reminiscences and reflections may be nostalgic, at times lamenting, but are invariably anecdotal, subjective and experiential. I can do little more than perhaps hold up a small mirror to reflect upon every-day life and values that puzzled me. The closing reflections show my angst regarding the changing culture, the rule of performance evaluation/rating and the micro-political agenda. I hope that this way of sharing personal experiences/perspectives may be of interest to others.
