Where does our work as scholars happen and live? When academic programs and cultural institutions are embroiled in conflict and cuts, where are the powerful spaces and formats for doing our work that fall outside of traditional structures? This session will use an Open Space Technology format to support engaging in dialog around questions that matter most to us. Participants will form groups around questions that they bring to the session and will decide how to engage those questions as the session unfolds. Results may include a better understanding of perspectives, alliances formed, plans begun, and even actions taken.
