This site is my attempt to write about politics outside of the constraints of the University sector. Shorter, clearer, concise pieces. Also – and more fun for me – less concern with lots of references and genuflection to academic peers. I am not writing quick opinion pieces though – I am putting good work into these. I want to cover lots of topics, including many that I am not specialised in. The University sector talks a lot about ‘impact’ and ‘engagement’ but commonly has a really odd idea of what these are. This is my best attempt to engage and make my research and reflections key in with broader and more inclusive discussions about matters that matter. The pieces will be as long as they need to be – but no longer. And I will endeavour to add something on a regular basis… every fortnight or so.
So, please click on blogs and have a read.
