fishing boat cruise over to the Baird glacier to hike moraines. wildflowers and arctic terns haven’t arrived yet, so felt a little lonely, but always an amazing place to tromp around. we may have pushed some giant rocks down a big moraine hill 🪨

Question - What's the best way to avoid your credit dropping via a mortgage payoff?

inquiline,
@inquiline@union.place avatar

@BlackAzizAnansi Keep some credit cards you don't use? I had a mortgage for a little while and I don't think my credit fell when I discharged it (moved, never paid it off).

Hello fellow academic researchers, I am having a discussion with a sociologist about whether and to what degree a social science degree should and can include courses on history and historical methodology. To make my case, which should be based on existing research and researchers, I am looking for sociologists and political scientists, who have either worked historically or have thought about how and why history should be part of social science thinking.

@sonjdol This is not a citation answer, but I'm an STS scholar who has primarily worked ethnographically, and my advisor was a historian, and we had a lot of good conversations about resonances btwn them. I also always include a lot of history in my teaching even for contemporary topics. From me, big endorsement of including history in social science thinking. I will say tho that while I cite historians constantly, the reverse is not true; the dialogue is not there too much.

@sonjdol Yeah, my advisor was always quite generous about my work's relevance to hist of tech people, but I've actually encountered a good deal of gatekeeping from historians of sci/tech and don't go to the subfield confs these days.

Oh thought of a cite for you, Michael Burawoy, piece on the extended case method, if no one said it already: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1111/0735-2751.00040

I still try to give the neighbors space on the sidewalk when I encounter them

@mediageek These ducks let me get so close I was shocked! Those snaps turned out worse in terms of composition, so not what I shared here, but they really did not care about me walking by (even tho I really did try to give them space so as to not... ruffle them)

OMG if you use a hashtag that is used by marginalized people for their community conversations and they ask you to consider not using it because you yourself are not a member of that community, say thank you and consider editing your post, don't double down

@wendinoakland Eh, I'm just a community member here too, albeit one who's tried to pay some attention. (but: thank you!)

IMO the issue isn't that norms get breached; this is inevitable, sometimes. But communication & repair need to be able to be on the table.

    @beadsland It's funny, I considered whether or not to tag for real and can see arguments either way, but then ultimately decided it was kinda hashtag spam, maybe. But you're right, there is a good argument for tagging it for real. Too late now I guess?

    *I guess anyone who sees it can still click thru to the tag if they want to? Idk, hailing and visibility here is weird, who'd have thunk it

    @beadsland You can't change the visibility of the post, unless you delete it.

    But ok I will!

    What that picture needs is the 6 ft/2 meters distance marked out with tape or duck footprints

    @beadsland I have a friend who has a really nice/haunting archive of those ghost tape markings, on Instagram (which I do not use)

    @beadsland I'll see what I, and the local geese, can do

    Drowning in words (read, written, forgotten)

    (a thing that is starting to happen is students thanking me for feedback months later and I cannot really remember their projects, or what I said)

    (I remember being in their position tho and the same thing clearly happening to/with my advisors)

    (fortunately my feedback tends to be consistent with myself, pointing to some ingrained thought habits even without accompanying memory)

    Wonder when it will be obvious that I've crossed fully over into thought-tunnels and left thought itself behind 😬

    I dunno if it's normal that anything I plan for my enjoyment/appreciation comes with a ton of anxiety & worry that makes it seem not worth it, or if I'm doing adulthood wrong

    @athena I'm not especially like this myself but I am close to multiple people who are (and sometimes mediating between them) (normal, schmormal)

    In a significant BDS achievement, the UK's government's anti-boycott bill, which targeted pro-Palestine parties and student organizations to prevent them from promoting the boycott of Israeli goods, has been defeated.
