Training the imagination to go visiting

Barr, J. and Griffiths, M. (2004) Training the imagination to go visiting. In: Nixon, J. and Walker, M. (eds.) Reclaiming Universities from a Runaway World. Maidenhead SRHE and Open University Press., pp. 85-99. ISBN 0335212913




Jon Nixon’s article, ‘Learning the Language of Deliberative Democracy’ explored languages of hope in relation to the discourses of deliberative democracy. Ours continues this theme of finding languages of hope. Like his article, ours makes people central. It explores a neglected area of epistemology: knowing people. It suggests that we take a critical perspective on the metaphors we live and then re-configure them to think again about the public and private spaces in the universities where we work.
