Welcome to Pam-mentations.

As a lower working class woman who entered academia — i.e. commenced my studies — in my mid-forties, I am torn between two identities.┬áIn as far as I am able, I seek conciliation between these identities i) for myself, and, more broadly, ii) for the people represented by each of these groups.

If you think I’ve missed something or ‘got it all wrong’, that’s okay. If I’ve left you with something to think about, all the better.

My aim is to keep most of my entries short and digestible, though I’ll post the occasional long entry. However, note that some of my posts are a series. These I post sequentially, and number e.g. 1.1., 1.2, 1.3 …2.1, 2.2, ….and so on. I also embed links to related posts where appropriate.

All photos on this site are my own.

Unless I state otherwise, captions — to the best of my knowledge — are my own.

Thank you for visiting.
