This non-teaching time of the academic year, contrary to popular opinion, is actually the time when we like to try and catch up on reading and research, finish off articles for publication, and increasingly, there is actually time it seems, for us as colleagues to actually stop and talk for change, rather than rush past as is so often the case. I also have some matters to follow up now that the old/new/reinstalled minister for higher ed, Senator Kim Carr, is said to be reviewing the contentious cuts to the sector, just at the same time my colleagues at ANU are hearing about 230 jobs to go.
