About the Author

I am a poet, a singer and an artist. See my other (older) blog for my creative work, poetry and photographs http://papillon-krystal.blogspot.com/

I am also an academic and an activist.

This blog is for my ramblings and reflections. Often in academia, we get pulled by our projects, and don’t always get to speak about the everyday navigations we must engage in as women, feminists, daughters, teachers, etc. Topics of discussion will vary, including field and work experiences, personal negotiations, and voyages through the universe of academic thought and praxis.

I bid you Good Reading.
