The bologna process and the intensification of university professors' work: interview with Josep M. Blanch

This text, divided in two parts, focuses on the Bologna Process and its repercussions for the work of European university professors. It emphasizes the intensification of the work of these professors. As has occurred in Brazil, influenced by the so-called "CAPES Evaluation and Support Model," European university professors are feeling the weight and effects of so called "academic productivism." The central and longest portion of the text presents an interview with Professor Joseph M. Blanch, of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). His reflections and revelations about the implementation of the Bologna Process at UAB in particular and at European universities in general, serves as an example of the implantation and the (pre)visualization of the results of a process characterized by heteronomy. A brief presentation is also made to present the issue and the context of the interview.
