Many of the feminist faculty interviewed for the study contrasted the work they had been able to do in the early years of their departments with what they felt was necessary more recently. With this new model of management had come an increased emphasis on productivity, on publishing in English language journals, and on getting external project funding, which had led them to redirect their energies in terms of academic curriculum and programmes, research, and their service. As a result, their work was increasingly moving away from local problems and populations to address topics that resonated more with international audiences in their field.
