"Knowledge should not be presented by teachers (who see themselves as all-knowing truth-tellers and oracles) as a commodity to be acquired, but as a human struggle to understand, to overcome falsity, and to stumble towards the truth." (Fischer, 1999)

Quoted @raulpacheco

This is a really unfair question because I strongly believe that there are numerous ethnographies that are brilliant. I wrote an entire chapter on ethnography for comparative policy analysis where I summarize 20 books I read which are ethnographies. So, here it goes (thread) https://twitter.com/roswillz/status/1082968020325224449 …

I have to go to sleep but I want to ask (self-promotion totally valid!) for ethnographies published as single-author books. I will particularly appreciate recommendations of books by authors on the margins (LGBTQ, Latino, Black, disabled, etc.) - please reply, don't quote-tweet.

Fewer than one in five people worldwide have a high level of trust in scientists, according to new research by @wellcometrust https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/global-poll-shows-only-18-cent-have-high-trust-scientists …

This is probably one of those articles that shouldn't be behind a paywall. :-)

A PhD is a certification that you have gained the knowledge and skill set needed to be successful in one of many sets of career options. It is not a status symbol. It does not make you better than anyone else.

Adult learning or Andragogy (Knowles, 1998)

Been seeing a lot of posts about *who* you need to be to do a #PhD. Yes, you should want to do research and/or teach as an end goal, but everything else is arbitrary or political. If you want it, you can do it.

Why would a school of information science have a biologist and physicist on its faculty? @UW_iSchool professor @JevinWest studies the "science of science," analyzing millions of scholarly papers and the billions of links that connect them.

Challenging the "I'm bad at math" rhetoric for girls and women. They imply there may be different ways to teach yourself difficult topics. And ask us to go back and learn something we thought was hard in our youth.
