Abstract

This book presents multiple takes on the notion of working the performance of academic-writer/thinker both inside and outside the academy. Starting somewhere … this book positions writing as inquiry, as science, as art, as performance and as research; creating opportunities for self-knowing through continual, ever-uncertain identity constructions as academic and as academic writer in multiple and diverse spaces and territories of academia; working with and questioning (without the need to necessarily answer) how shifting contexts give shape to (or not) spaces for academics as writers, thinkers, constructors of ‘self’ in continual processes of becoming.
