Paolo Cardullo

163.gif I used to work full time, 9 to 5, in Peckham Jobcentre Plus, and had done this for a few years, until my son was born: this gave me a chance to re-think my daily routine, and consider the important things in life. What I most like about Goldsmiths are the supportive environment, the feeling that you are valued as an individual, and the mix of tools, both theoretical and practical, that have been proposed to me. There’s so much going on at Goldsmiths, and sometimes I have the impression that I miss a lot of events, conferences, workshops, exhibitions, seminars, and I wish I could have more time at hand. However, my compatibility with my work-life balance, I still have a chance to participate and enjoy the flexible arrangements and schedules of a lot of events, evening seminars, week end tutorials, remote web-based assistance, etc. There is a sense of being part of a lively community of learning and, by being encouraged to participate with own work and presentations, of contributing to a fruitful research enterprise.
