Living in Paradox: Metaphors of Conflict and Contradiction in the Academy
ABSTRACT The article offers information on the art installations which represent the experiences of teacher educators on the paradox of the academy. It mentions the use of graphic language to construct images or metaphors to represent elements of their experiences and idiosyncratic complexities. Meanwhile, the personal and professional sacrifices of the educators to stay in the academy to make a difference reduce their commitment to their families and result to less salary with little or no job security.
