After 15 years at Bournemouth University, I have decided to retire at the end of February. It was not an easy decision and the reasons are many and layered. Suffice it to say here that it was becoming an environment in which it was more and more difficult to make academic and creative contributions within a fiercely managerial approach to scholarly endeavours.
I will now be able to get to four books that have been 'in discussion' for some time. I also will continue with PhD supervision. I am available for workshops and keynotes at other institutions, particularly ones where we can arrange these virtually.
I would appreciate it if you would make any comments by private message and not here in a social media environment. For this reason, the Comments function is not available on this post.
Thanks and looking forward to the next Chapter, as it should always be.
I gave my love didn't I?
And I gave it big sometimes
And I gave it in my own sweet time
