The following Twitter feed accompanied my life performance of Tier 2 Worker Remote Office at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge on March 15-16, 2018. For more information about the performance, click here.
@gasedwards I only have principles when they are convenient for me, like that one time I stood on a picket line for 12 days before working from the #T2WRemoteOffice for 2.
@gasedwards Does journal writing that entails reflection violate ASOS? Asking for a friend. He learned in grad school that he is supposed to write soon after exiting the field. Not sure how to advise him. #T2WRemoteOffice
It’s the weekend and I’m still thinking about how the #T2WRemoteOffice contributed to the global marketplace of ideas, where borders were crossed in the name of innovation.
@felthamgirl @drfplmoore Yesterday, on behalf of all posh universities, I signed a memorandum of understanding with @DavidIanSkinner, who signed on behalf of all ex-polys, which committed to cooperation between sectors. Not sure what that means in terms of employment transferability. #T2WRemoteOffice
I am getting ready to shut the #T2WRemoteOffice down. Say your goodbyes.
Finished reviewing work for “Touching Signs,” a project by Dulcee Boehm, an amazing MFA student. #T2WRemoteOffice https://t.co/qgIlFCfNOe
I just finished reviewing a dissertation outline for a doctoral student. That means a wafer cookie with cocoa cream for me, and stellar feedback for her. Now on to reviewing an overview of an upcoming MFA thesis! #T2WRemoteOffice
My son is getting a book to read from the children’s collection for his afternoon in the #T2WRemoteOffice. Thank you for your assistance @edfaclib !!!
@Feiney The #T2WRemoteOffice is temporarily closed while its staff member picks up child from school.
A young boy with a big backpack visited #T2WRemoteOffice on his walk home from school to ask me what I thought about the proposed agreement. I said we rejected it. #NoCapitulation
Time for #T2WRemoteOffice #ShoutOut. I'd like to send this one to Allison Rowe whose performance art has influenced this project. Check out her Tar Sands Museum and Interactive Sculpture in an 1982 Dodge camper van. https://t.co/JjUMqQRtaE
@edfaclib @CamEdFac I can't cite anything from *Performance Standards in Education*. My goodness. That's a tough read for #T2WRemoteOffice.
@edfaclib @CamEdFac Bryant Alexander describes Turner's theory of performative reflexivity: "... the most insightful members of particular communities turn backwards and inwards, to engage the double-lensed act of looking at themselves *look at themselves.* #T2WRemoteOffice might be on to something.
@edfaclib @CamEdFac Dolton, McIntosh, and Chevalier (2003, p. 22) review the literature on performance-related pay and suggest that PRP schemes r counterproductive when team work and the co-operation of colleagues is involved in the production of any output (e.g. student learning). #T2WRemoteOffice
Has the VC spoken to the groundbreaking performance art that occurs at the University of Cambridge? Asking for a friend. #T2WRemoteOffice #ToopeAssembly @CambridgeUCU
Finished letter = Jam tartlet. #T2WRemoteOffice
@Feiney I think it would be 11:15 given you just changed your clocks. #T2WRemoteOffice
HOLD ON... I'm about to start my second letter of recommendation in 2 days!!! If I get this done in less than an hour, I get a jam tartlet cuz I perform work for rewards. #T2WRemoteOffice
@edfaclib I know you are busy in there, but any way you might bring 3 books to #T2WRemoteOffice:
> Teacher Pay and Performance by Dolton et al;
> Performance Theories in Education by Alexander et al; and, > Performance Standards in Edu: In Search of Quality by the OECD? Thx!
"But peoples are also the subjects of history the way workers are subjects of a strike: they define the very terms under which some situations can be described." Michel-Rolph Trouillot, from the desk of #T2WRemoteOffice.
How long is your lunch break supposed to be when you are engaged in an Action Short of Strike? I'm ready to get back to work now. #T2WRemoteOffice
@brownchris71 Dear Sir, @td287 is performing his (art)work in a sun-blessed garden at a posh university amidst a field of dandelions. You tweeting vulgarities about beans & farting is ruining its aesthetics for his audience. Have you no decency? Good day. The Secretary of the #T2WRemoteOffice
Picnic lunch with wife at the #T2WRemoteOffice. I never did this when I was striking. I rarely do it when I’m working (lunch, let alone with Kate). So, I’m happy to be performing art.
