The term 'research' is rarely questioned. It is a term whose meaning seems to be implicitly understood. Certainly there is an institutional bureaucracy which supports 'research', and academic staff are rewarded for their strength in 'research'. But what is this research? It is likely that there are multiple understandings of 'research', but unless this diversity of understanding is recognised, it is difficult to have meaningful dialogue about it.
