The Persons Hub is a inter-, multi-, and trans-disciplinary space for examining the meaning of what it means to be a person and how persons stand in relationships to each other, to local and social communities, and within the wider contexts of national and international communities. Persons live and work within a variety of different relationships and contexts, and the projects within the Hub seek to explore and examine the nature of human relationships as well as how they are influenced by the contexts in which they are formed and take place. Persons forgive, they hope, form friendships, become intimate, fall in love, betray each other; things happen to persons – they become stressed, become patients, become depressed, commit suicidal; and, in the course of living in the world, are forced to make a multitude of decisions as they seek to living a ‘meaningful’ life. The projects within the Hub aim to understand the multi-faceted nature of what it means to be us as we live our lives in the world.
There is presently no Hub Leader for the Persons Hub. If you would be interested in being considered for the role, please contact Rob Fisher and Simon Bacon.
The Hub is a centre of activity for all the various projects which presently take place within it. We welcome your involvement and interaction; you may choose to become involved as little or as much as you like.
The Hub Leaders run a blog which discusses issues and themes arising from all the projects within the Persons hub. The blog will be available from 1st March 2009. You will be able to access the blog by clicking here.
During the course of 2009 a number of email discussion groups will come in to existence, one for each of the projects we run. These will be listed here as soon as they ready along eith details on how to subscribe.
From April 2009 there will be a series of eForums where people can share resources, access information and get involved in on-line discussions.
And from July 2009 we will be launching a Repository Wicki which will aim to become a comprehensive collection of materials and resources relating to the themes and issues covered by the hub and its projects.
