In this episode of “Knowledge for Breakfast”, we are joined by SERRC founder, Jim Collier, to discuss the what he means by ‘realizing knowledge together’, and, as academics, what we take our role to be in this knowledge making enterprise. Taking this further, we chat about how academia could be and play around with imagining possible academic futures.
