Taking up authority

Nita Cherry

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    This chapter explores how our group of university women have engaged with a central concern of leadership in organisational and community settings: how to take up explicit and implicit possibilities to exercise authority. Many contemporary framings of leadership focus on its socially constructed dimensions, and especially on the negotiated and contested dynamics of authority.
