Relaunch Update

Dear uni(di)versity readers,

It’s been awhile!

Last year, we started uni(di)versity as a group project between friends who wanted to talk about diversity issues in academia. We didn’t realize how much hunger there was for a space for diverse voices to talk about their experiences.

Before we knew it, our little project ballooned into a blog that reached well beyond our immediate network – and we weren’t able to keep up. Between Caitlin’s thesis and Devon’s last year of law school, uni(di)versity sadly fell through the cracks.

Now we’ve had some interest and inquiries about what the hell happened – and when we’re coming back. And now that we both have a little more time on our hands, we’re looking into how we can rekindle the great conversations we were having here last year.

But before we do that, we want to hear from you.

What were the best parts of uni(di)versity? What kinds of conversations do you want our community to focus on? Do you want to write for us?

Let us know in the comments section below. And of course, you can always get in touch by email or on twitter

Lots of love,

Devon & Caitlin

  1. Great, looking forward to reading! One suggestion I have that might be interesting is to focus on a ‘theme’ for maybe a month, where different contributors weigh in. For an example of this check out ‘Transformation’ on openDemocracy where they’ve had series like ‘the politics of mental health’ or ’empathy’. It tends to get more discussion going and contributors interacting with each other or following up on others’ ideas. Just an idea… maybe for a later time. Also, I’d be interested in contributing at some point!

    • Thanks, Chelsey, that’s a great idea! It would probably be fair to say that uni(di)versity 1.0 sometimes lacked focus, and I think theme months would be a great way to get some wheels turning and start some conversations.

      And, of course, we’d love for you to contribute! Are there any topics you’re feeling particularly inspired by these days?

      – Devon
