Abstract (150-200 words)

In this unique webinar-workshop we will explore life in the university, seeking out pockets of community, as sources of light and of shade, of illumination and relief. We begin by considering together the heart work and art work of a little blue book… 

Dancing in the Dark: A Survivor’s Guide to the University is an illustrated pocketbook designed to keep those studying and working in universities in good heart. This book is at once an exploration, a dance in the dark, an invocation to intellectual openness and to dwelling; the authors write in their introduction that it: ‘addresses the insecurity, uncertainty and fears that attend having one’s being in the university and considers these as virtues rather than as failings. We offer this little book as a gift.’Come on in. The pictures are lovely
