One of the things this collection explores implicitly is this profession’s interesting geography, the spaces in which our bodies exist and profess. As Simone James Alexander points out, the real time of the classroom is only one such space; for her, as for several of the other writers in this collection, the space of the essay is a place in which what happened there is unpacked and worked out, eventually to return to a new teaching space.
