    I really enjoyed reading this piece by Nick Mahony at the OU. One of my roles at Sussex is Public Engagement Ambassador with the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement and what Nick writes about resonates with thinking that I’ve been doing. I particularly like his conclusion about ‘holding’ (in the psychoanalytic meaning of the word) as I would say, the ambiguities, contradictions and tensions that accompany contemporary debates on publics and public engagement.
