You know, I direct the Centre for Narrative and Conflict Resolution, and, you know, it’s sort of a baby centre and we don’t have a lot of money and we’re doing research and I’ve got doctoral students and stuff. So we’re just now starting to think about programming that we could do at the institute, at the centre, I’m sorry, in the summer, and then maybe something online. You know, I have, I taught online before, but I’ve taught traditional academic classes and not kind of workshops that I normally do on site somewhere. I haven’t done those online. But I could. So we’re thinking about some online workshops, and we’re also, and I offer academic classes, and I do training all over the place.


I teach a class this spring, and I have visiting scholars. There’s this wonderful visiting scholar, Samantha Hardy, from Australia, is coming in September. She’s coming to our place. Maria Pia Lara who wrote a book called Narrating Evil, it’s just brilliant, from Mexico, John Winslade, who wrote the book Narrative Mediation has come. Arthur Feldman from New York University has come. So we’ve had these visiting scholars come in and they give talks and we do workshops and it’s just, it’s a very vibrant, interesting community where we have fun.
