About this Book Chapter:

This chapter is a collaboration between an academic, a PhD student who is also a member of staff, and a recent alumna who have been involved in student-staff partnerships at our institution. The chapter is presented as a conversation between the three of us and is illustrated by Stephanie. We address the theme of intersections, exploring how partnerships interact with our identities as staff and students. We discuss ways in which partnerships allow us to play on the margins and create interstices—spaces between—where new possibilities emerge and barriers are overcome. We draw on notions of translation and transformation (Cook-Sather and Abbot 2016), as well as popular culture. We invite you to join our conversation.
