Cultures of Care – Tolerating Uncertainty

Date: TBC Unfortunately due to unforeseen events, we have had to postpone this event. We will update with new details as soon as possible.

In our opening event focusing on Cultures of Care in Higher Education – held on June 11th, 2021 – we asked “How do we care at work?”Our invited contributors responded to this question through a variety of lenses and from differing positions; however, some key unifying themes emerged. Amongst these was the importance of unknowing, ambivalence, vulnerability, trust, and unlearning. Going forwards we’d like to explore these further, both within and beyond the context of Higher Education. Our next networking event, on Friday 3rd December plans to do this under the umbrella title of “Tolerating Uncertainty”. We are delighted to welcome a group of wonderful speakers, who again, come from quite different disciplinary backgrounds, but who share interests in this compelling human theme:
