This chapter argues that the expansion in the “autonomy movement” from small university-based circles scattered here and there to a much larger and more diverse grouping means that new voices need to be listened to and conflicting interpretations engaged with. But just as it is vital to keep opening out to different narratives and understandings, it is also important to understand how we have got to where we are today. It is in this spirit, then, that this chapter shares personal stories ands commentaries of how the two conferences and this book came to be.

Keywords:   social autonomy, autonomy movement, self-awareness, learning autonomy, teacher
