Market day (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p36)

Market Day

Traditionally market day was once a week, and it must have been the social highlight of the week, too.

Conversely, the day before market day must have been pretty rough. You’ve just gone a week without shopping for fresh food, there’s little in the way of food preservation beyond the salted pork and the cool room, and southern Spain can get very hot….

Maybe the joy of market day was sometimes dampened by the affect of food poisoning from the night before?

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.

As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog:
