From November 25 until December 4 I will be joining colleagues across the country in striking over pensions and work&pay conditions. This blog and my university email will both be entirely unattended over the strike period.
Luckily, there is nothing that is urgent in our line of work. To the contrary, it is brief interruptions like this one that help us discern exactly what actually is, as John Berger would perhaps say, the urgent and the important – be it in a metro station Chile, a campus in Hong Kong, or at one of the UCU picket lines across the UK.
