Introducing myself to a new instance 

I guess I should do a new since I've moved to this instance.

I am from Oregon (USA) but living, teaching in Paris for years now. Currently a doctoral student focusing on the political economy of disinformation and fact-checking around controversies of and in US political discourse.

Current covid-safe interests: 🚲 🐱 🇻🇳 🍜

Ultimately, I am new here and open to tips on how to make the most of it 😀.

The American influence in French politics is getting out of control. With the help of TV-driven culture wars, an empowered far-right is setting the national agenda. My opinion piece for @nytimes@twitter.com. nytimes.com/2021/06/02/opinion

‘Our society is totally nuts’. Can I use this as the title of my dissertation?

No?

.@hiattf@twitter.com's editorial in @washingtonpost@twitter.com on vaccine access is odious, misinformed. Worst of all it's lazy. Why do your own research when you can recycle industry talking points? "Democracy dies in darkness," well so will millions w/o a vaccine. Thanks Fred.

There's a really cool event being put on by DSA in France tonight called "Race, Politics, and the Democratic Socialist Left: Perspectives from France and the U.S".

They have really great speakers from France and the US, making it a bit of a rare opportunity for English speakers. I screen captured the event details so you don't have to click on the link unless you're interested :).

Unfortunately, it's being broadcast using FB but no account is needed to watch: facebook.com/events/3967023090

In light of Pfeizer CFO D'Amelio talking about raising prices, does anyone know of research that looks at the economics of pharmaceuticals impact on anti-vax discourse? Have any fact-checkers dealt with this? theintercept.com/2021/03/18/co

You're worried the American press has learned nothing from the Trump years. You see it falling into old patterns. Your frustration is rising, your patience thinning. You can't believe we're going back to what was— after all that!

This football match was held today in Melbourne, Australia.

Six months ago, Melbourne was battling a second wave.

Today, COVID-19 has been eliminated.

A new book arrived 

I am really enjoying Fuchs' work here, especially his chapter on Ideology. But I had to stop in the middle and go back to one of my favorite books about one of my favorite theorists. plutobooks.com/9780745335681/u

Big Pharma will praise the ‘well functioning’ patent system forever. It makes them very rich. But shows it is no basis for a fair and healthy world. We need a very different model. independent.co.uk/news/health/
