Change the world

Faculty Researcher of the Year - Humanities

Prof Adrian Konik

Prof Konik forges connections between disparate ideas, statements, and practices, and then explores the questions, which such connections pose to our habitual modes of being.  “This is because our existing paradigms are both the product of such provocations in the past, and reliant upon the continuation of such provocations in the present.  Against such all-too-human Apollonian proclivities, for me, research should respond by gazing at the horizon of Dionysian possibility, to see the difference it implies for us today, since only then are we thinking,” he believes. 

What remains troubling are … the still amorphous concerns … which have yet to shed their nebulous state and assume the form of … questions.
