    Really Useful Knowledge: The New Vocationalism in Higher Education and Its Consequences for Mature Students.Andrew Marks - 1999 - British Journal of Educational Studies 47 (2):157 - 169.
    This paper offers a discursive analysis of the position of mature students vis-a-vis higher education and its increasingly necessary linkage with industry. Longstanding questions are raised as to what higher education is actually for: intellectual expansion, or merely to prepare young people for work? If it is the latter, then where does this leave mature students, who have less 'career' time left to use their degrees, and may simply be studying because of an interest in a given subject?

    Uniformity, Universality, and Computability Theory.Andrew S. Marks - 2017 - Journal of Mathematical Logic 17 (1):1750003.
    We prove a number of results motivated by global questions of uniformity in computabi- lity theory, and universality of countable Borel equivalence relations. Our main technical tool is a game for constructing functions on free products of countable groups. We begin by investigating the notion of uniform universality, first proposed by Montalbán, Reimann and Slaman. This notion is a strengthened form of a countable Borel equivalence relation being universal, which we conjecture is equivalent to the usual notion. With this additional (...)

    Lifelong Learning and the 'Breadwinner Ideology': Addressing the Problems of Lack of Participation by Adult, Working-Class Males in Higher Education on Merseyside.Andrew Marks - 2000 - Educational Studies 26 (3):303-319.
    This paper considers the cultural and economic positions of working-class men in the specific context of Merseyside, their attitudes towards education and the effects on their levels of participation in higher education. Drawing upon recent research into mature students in British universities, the paper suggests that universities themselves need to change if they are to offer an image and environment that will appeal to the adult working class, and in particular the adult workingclass male and, significantly, the universities must reassess (...)
