Graphic Installation on Carers in HE
Wondering what I’ve been up to? Dr. Marie Pierre Moreau and I have perpetrated a delicious graphic installation piece of comics-based/arts-based research focusing on the experiences of carers in higher education. This project has been generously supported by an AdvanceHE Good Practice Grant. We hope to bring the exhibit to locations across the UK and the US in 2021, coronavirus allowing. However, you can follow project teasers on twitter @mpsmoreau and @ProfessorMommy (that’s me!).
Also, the irony that I have been writing and drawing a project on how carers are marginalized in the academy while a single parent of three children during the pandemic is not lost on me. I encourage all the academics who are also carers to include this information in every piece of work they produce to draw attention to this added dimension of “lockdown”. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2020/04/21/early-journal-submission-data-suggest-covid-19-tanking-womens-research-productivity
