Poem responding to current situation of the researcher in HE during dramatic political turmoil and identity crisis. The relevance of this research lies in the connections drawn, through the mediujm of poetry, between political diktat, professional practice and theory-informed resistance to intrusion by exterior forces in education. It responds to key questions about professional boundaries and boundary crossings in higher education, such as the extent to which the experiences of educators and educatees (rather than merely ‘learners’ and ‘teachers’) are being shaped, if not controlled, by drivers that have no evidence-base in theory or praxis. It raises further questions regardingclose-to-practice methodologies and how these may facilitate dialogue on contemporary issues of ‘ownership’ of HE, the attendant responsibilities of educators and educatees and the reclamation of academe as a place and space for ‘doing good work’.
