Alternative Academia

If you’re interested in my occasional thoughts on academic life – having left – there’s a new discussion piece where David Robertson and I share our thoughts on what alternative academia might look like in the free journal Rogue.

This is based on thoughts that we shared, along with other participants, at The Conference at the End of the World last summer, which was indeed as awesome as it sounds. Thanks so much to editor, Vivian Asimos, for including me in this. There’s also a couple of great papers in this edition of the journal, based on presentations from the conference.

Meg-John Barker is the author of a number of popular books on sex, gender, and relationships, including Queer: A Graphic History, How To Understand Your Gender, Enjoy Sex (How, When, and IF You Want To), Rewriting the Rules, The Psychology of Sex, and The Secrets of Enduring Love. They have also written a number of books for scholars and counsellors on these topics, drawing on their own research and therapeutic practice.


  1. I look forward to reading more about this from you. Good luck. 🙂
