Just read this article on working conditions of London maids and in the context of a day off after three days of teaching drawing and a conversation about prospective dissertation methods, I found Barbara Pokryszka’s art in it so powerful.
Part of the conversation about dissertations was about the importance of including our own stories and, for me, using different modalities. As in Nick Sousanis’ Unflattening – a book I keep wanting to take on a wild weekend to a cabin by the sea! And he’s teaching a class in Calgary. *SIGH*
And all of it is caught up in my mind with my recent academic teaching experience and the realization of this focused pedagogy of correctness and writing to the rubrics… yikes. Still working through that 🙂
