Abstract

This article in scrapbook form represents the endeavour of the eight authors to document a recent, collective, academic journey. The project was one embarked upon as a means to explore tensions between the ideas of embodiment that connected our work, and the rigidities of academic convention. Using various media, this article strives, in substance and form, to provoke, challenge and confront its audience into dialogue, while simultaneously asking questions about the limits of our own legal imaginations.

Keywords: academic convention, rigidities of academic convention, collaboration, embodiment, feminist methodology, image theatre, performativity, postcards, post-colonialism
