I am sliding back and forth between incandescent take-to-the-streets rage and bleak take-to-my-bed despair.

This is the right step for a university committed to the broadest possible public service. I hope that forward-thinking US-based institutions might follow suit. The competition serves none of us well. https://twitter.com/BirkbeckUoL/status/1049664478357479424

Replying to @khj5c

I checked, and it’s not that, but I think it’s something *like* that — a personal appointment that I didn’t want to announce to everyone who can see my calendar but that I couldn’t set to “private” on my phone. Figured I’d fill in the details later… and didn’t.

I so feel this, Amanda. I went through a huge “something needs to shift” myself over the last several years. The changes were slow in coming, but privileging life over work \(and community over individual accomplishment\) has been at their heart. Sending you all my best!
