Abstract

In this chapter, we consider concepts of space and place in relation to academic writing. Arising from a flow of emails, ideas/thoughts/feelings began to emerge in-between us as two academics. Located separately, both geographically and institutionally, our writing emerged from mo(ve)ments – both physically and affectively. One of us moved institutions, the other moved out of academic institutions. We found ourselves needing to re-make/re-consider/re-create our spaces and places in which to do the work of ‘academia’, and ‘re-be/come’ as academics in these new spaces. Through this there was a seeking out of mo(ve)ments of connections. A seeking to engage in the task of academic writing capable of embracing mo(ve)ments of becoming-academic, rather than ‘being’ academic. In so doing, the chapter engages with minor writing to disrupt/disturb striated forms of academic writing and enable multiple ways of being and becoming as academic.
