    About Critical Careers Network (CCN)


    Critical Careers Network (CCN) is an international and interdisciplinary network and community for those interested in researching and teaching careers critically and developing their own or others' careers differently from established mainstream norms.

    By 'critical' we mean questioning career performativity, functionalism, managerialism, linearity, individualism and other established career norms.

    We aim to create a safe space, new community and networking opportunity for those interested in these issues.

    All academics, activists and practitioners, regardless of geographical location, discipline, or institutional affiliation (or the lack thereof) are very welcome.
