The transformations of the university space from the eighties reveals the rise of managerialist ways to organize the university and its workforce, fostering a culture of accountability and plurality of tasks such as research, guided by the logic of efficiency and market movements. Such claims therefore imply the existence of reconfigurations in academic work identity. Drawing on focused interviews with 20 academics, the article shows two axes around which the narrative identities of academics are organized and what are its effects on self-definition of the group and the ethics of academic work.
