A Reflective Account on Dimensions of Caring: Moments of Care Within Journal Editorship, Doctoral Supervision, and Deanship
Considering that the elucidations on care in the previous chapters invariably involved my articulations in and about educational encounters within an HE context, I thought it apposite to produce a chapter on my own reflections about my collective roles as journal editor, supervisor and dean of a faculty of education during more than two decades in higher education. What I hope to show in this chapter, is that some of the notions of caring – especially democratic, cosmopolitan and ubuntu caring as instances of rhythmic caring – espoused throughout this book, have not been alien to my academic involvement for many years in a university setting. I will endeavour to link some of the dimensions of caring that I have accounted for in this book to my engagement with editorship, student supervision and deanship in a university setting. In this way, I envisage to contextualise some of the aspects of caring in relation to my personal, public and professional sojourn as a philosopher of education.
