Wellbeing and Self-care in Higher Education: Embracing Positive Solutions


About the Series

The Wellbeing and Self-care in Higher Education series reveals the stories of those working in higher education and illuminates the constant reconstruction of identities and work practices that places self-care at the centre of the work we do. Highlighted through image and word narratives (visual narratives) are realities, the voice of our colleagues, and (re)positioning of a shift into what is possible when we care for ourselves and others.

This series places academic wellbeing and self-care at the heart of discussions around working in higher education and provides a diverse range of strategies for how to put in place wellbeing and self-care approaches as an academic. It contributes to the conversation on ways that wellbeing and self-care can be positioned in the work that those working in higher education do and highlights new ways of working in higher education that disrupt current tensions that neglect wellbeing. Including both edited and authored collections, the lived experiences shared and practical strategies offered within will be vital reading for all those working in academia.
