An Ecosystem of Personal and Professional Reading, Writing, Researching and Professing
Connelly, F. Michael
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v13 n3 p349-356 Jul 2010
"Culture Currents" presents the books, essays, poetry, performances, music, websites, and other cultural media influencing educational leaders. "Culture Currents" is a snapshot, a peek behind the scenes. It reveals what people are reading or seeing that may not be normally mentioned or cited in their academic work. Two leaders in education were contacted and asked to answer questions about books, essays or poetry as well as performances, music, websites or other media they have read and encountered that have inspired them, influenced their thinking or impacted them. This article presents Connelly's response to the "Culture Currents" invitation. He states that the request by "Culture Currents" led to a cycle of reading and reflection that brought him back to well-trodden ground in a new comparative context and reminded him that there is even more reading, thinking, and writing to do than people had imagined when undertaking the cross-cultural work. He expects that if one were to do a study of what was in the minds of the "Culture Currents" editors and, hence, in the minds of their authors, it would be that the personal and the professional are mostly separate domains. The author presents an account of his own landscape of the personal and the professional and its relationship to reading.
