Isaev D.P. - Negative effects of dynasticity in perception of the academic staff of Russian universities pp. 53-63


Abstract: The object of this research is the image of professional dynasty that exists in collective perception of pedagogical staff of the Russian universities. The goal of this work lies in outlining mental space, which actualizes various connotations of the image of professional dynasty and dynasticity as the social practice in modern Russian society. For achieving the set goal, the author conducts a comparative analysis of positive and negative assessments of dynasticity, and reveals the factors that determine critical attitude in the university environment. The article is based on the questionnaire method with subsequent calculation of raw data, generalization and analysis of quantitative data; applies contextual interpretation of the qualitative data. According to the acquired data, an outwardly positive outlook upon professional dynasties is adjusted through comprehensive analysis of response groups. Attention is turned to the fact that the positive image of dynasticity is not extended to such spheres as law enforcement agencies and state administration. It is established that positive assessments rather correlate with personal values, while negative – with socially oriented values. The conclusion is made that professionalism is not the key factor in representations of the academic staff on the advantages of dynasticity, which indicates latent non-recognition of its advantages overall. Ambiguous attitudes with regards to professional continuity for their families should also be viewed in terms of overall criticism towards dynasties in Russian modern social space.
