I’ve been spending the last month focusing in on methodology. I’ve returned this week to the concept of emotional intelligence. This time looking more critically at the idea and the abilities I wish to focus on in respect to what can I measure in terms of emotional abilities. Empathy is a definite skill and worth further reading.
I’ve also begun promoting an event at Warwick University. An hour of wintery tales from Irish storyteller Colin King. This is a free event for postgraduated students made possible with support from the Research Student Skills Programme and the department of English and Comparative Literary Studies. I’m hoping to get students to share their stories after the main event and hope that it will be a success.
