The Academy as ventruous Practise: 83/30/13 drawing a map of venturous practice in the academy and the wider field

Addressing the Lacuna (a blank or missing or portion of a manuscript)

My research to date has established a cast of characters and characteristics that have defined our academy and helped to shape its practices, especially those that may be favoured with the adjective of venturousness.
Harder to tie down are the subtle and nuanced ways communities of practice have grown and established their positions within a practice regime, or reemerged as influential drivers long after their presence in a physical sense has ceased. Current work aims to make these threads and connections apparent, to trace there they meet, knot, break and begin anew. The lacuna may yet become to most interesting parts of the map of practice.
