Abstract and Keywords

The very idea of scholarship has taken something of a battering over recent years. In parallel, the term ‘scholarship’ itself—in the English language—has also faltered. This chapter explores this phenomenon but also examines the prospects for its re-energizing. Could it be that even if scholarship is becoming invisible at the moment, it might yet become more evident? The idea of scholarship is waning but perhaps it can emerge again as a possibly significant form of academic endeavour. It might even flower anew. That is the possibility that this chapter shall pursue here, and shall do so by advancing an idea of ecological scholarship.

Keywords: scholarship, ecological scholarship, higher education, research, academic discipline
