Zen Parry uses the powerful dead horse metaphor to emancipate EE from a litany of broken projects that cast a long shadow over education in general. In a highly reflective chapter, Parry draws on the wisdom of experiencing and developing EE in many unique global contexts to cut through to the core of her approach to EE; show up – do the work – no excuses. Currently embedded in a Native American tribal context, the dead horse metaphor (and its related memes) provides many abrupt moments for serious reflections. It is a tool used skillfully throughout the chapter to ensure many long-held assumptions about the role and place of EE in higher education are challenged in a thoughtful manner.
