Past prediction (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p85)

Past prediction

I imagine a time traveller would always be indulging in ‘past prediction’ – trying to fill in the gaps between the future they know and the past they are experiencing. It would be not unlike plotting an historical novel, testing out various ‘what-ifs’ and trying to make them add up with the known facts.

When dealing with history 8 centuries old, you have a lot of ‘alternative facts’ to contend with. Historical accuracy is only possible up to a point, and after that you’ve just got to pick and choose.

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:
