Coming to the end of my first proper back at work after my long sabbatical. So amazing to back in the space of the Sustainability Institute, and tomorrow I’ll return to the CST (Centre for Complex Systems in Transition) to see if I still have a desk. Just finished going through the applications for the 2019 intake into our Masters programme – really amazing people applying, with many more from African countries, which is really great. As usual, the majority of the applications are from women, and most black women. Not sure how to explain this demographic. Buried below a mudslide of academic admin, the beautiful memory of my near-completed book is receding – so worried about that!
