…but the hat, red trench coat and high boots are snazzy. As for the blog, with 4 posts in January, missed all of February and today being March 25, even I ask if there is one. There's a tunc et nunquam feel about it all and with it, temptation to throw caution to the winds.
So here I am ~ less about throwing anything to the winds just yet: just clearing more space while I consider directions. Just don't expect a blog post day for the rest of the month. Although not much of a blog these days, the network is alive and well. I've even been thinking how to bypass the blog and post directly to the network or some rss manifestation of it. So let's talk about the network, turning informationist and other (in my opinion) adjunct-appropriate interests. My latest PF Network page update covers those:
Now, collections from the above are transformed/remixed from folders and tags into feeds, html clips and bundles on InoReader. Bundles include social justice, immigration (special project for Adjunct Justice), labor, higher education, adjunct/ contingent faculty, education, academic labor, BDS/Palestine Advocacy (special project for Sean Kennedy), Ayotzinapa Matters (special project for Adjunct Justice). These are less networks than news/information/resource collections.
All precarity, social justice and human rights issues should matter to contingent faculty. Some will be more interested in -- committed to -- particular areas than others. BDS/Palestine Advocacy, Ayotzinapa, and immigration are cases in point. Education, like social justice, is huge -- overwhelming, too relevant to ignore and the contained topics too interrelated to separate in silos. Both would benefit from looking at aspects (topic areas) as parts of complex ecosystems that include yet more topics -- arts, humanities, social sciences, law, technology, media, natural resources, climate, and more.
Daunting. Irresistibly so.
