This book introduces readers to new and emergent forms of learning spaces that need to be (re) captured in a academic life. It suggests that the ability to have or to find space in academic life seems to be increasingly difficult since we seem to be consumed by teaching and bidding, overwhelmed by emails and underwhelmed by long arduous meetings. Space for reflecting, thinking and writing are seen as important for the development of academe and the positioning of the academic self within it; yet currently there seems to a lack of realisation that we are losing ground because we are losing space.
