Conference program

Theme 1: Contemplative Beginnings

This first theme sets the scene for the conference, inviting us to dream, contemplate and connect.

Theme 2: Building Caring Communities

This theme will explore what it might mean to live well, and to give attention to how we work and interact with one another.

Theme 3: Lived experiences of women in academia

This third theme considers why it is important to shed light on women’s lived experiences, to talk about what it has felt like, and feels like, to be a female academic.

Theme 4: Reimagining academia

This fourth and final theme uses the metaphor of the university as an ‘infinite game’ (Harre, Grant, Locke, Sturm, 2017) to connect us to our heart for imagination, hope, and inclusion.
