Emotions, Emoticons and Feeling Your Way Through University

We take in new learning through what we hear, study and experience, and things shift: we’re ‘moved’. But what do you do with feelings that arise? Do you send them in a text or write them into an essay? In this series, through writing and investigative mapmaking, explore how feelings shape and bring life to learning.

Truth and Reconciliation

Our country chose a middle way

                        of individual amnesty for truth.

–– Archbishop Desmond Tutu


This man knows something
about healing. That the heart
must be torn open again
in front of compassionate witnesses.
That the accused must also step up
and reveal themself.
That no matter how high-pitched
the shrieks, how barren
the voice, everything must be
heard, everything must be
held, in the same room.
