For Thinking in Crisis Times, students at King’s responded to the first term’s readings with a series of poems (see https://thinking-in-crisis-times-a-collective-exploration.webnode.com/history/).
In the Spring term, a call was issued for submissions on the topic of the Extra/Ordinary, which elicited a range of powerful work in the form of writing and images.
The selected submissions for Thinking in Crisis Times on the topic of the Extra/Ordinary are:
Rosemary’s Bodies by Sarah Arnold, Body Talk by Finlay Cousins and Living in lock-down by Lauren Mappledoram.
