Skills Circle

Knitting Circle

A collaboration between IILAH, the UNSW Critique Network of Professor Ben Golder, and La Trobe Law and Humanities Network co-led by Dr Kathleen Birrell.

Our theme for the first few sessions was on editing. Editing a collection, Editing a Journal, Editing your own work, and Editing collaborative writing were all on the agenda.

The ‘Skills Circle’ is modelled on the knitting circle, which brings knitters of all levels of experience together into a room to knit, and while they do so, to share ideas and techniques, and to experience the camaraderie of a shared activity. Accordingly, we invited scholars of all levels, from PhD students and early career researchers, to mid and late career researchers who want to share their knowledge, or watch how other people do things to reflect upon their own methods. Sessions were kept small to allow for good conversation, and often featured special guests.
