sexual harassment, Verso Books
I’m not buying from Verso Books anymore, and nor should you
At least until they apologize to Emily Janakiram
I really need to know this, so please boost for visibility:
Are there any people out there on the autistic spectrum that have found a format of living that works for them, that makes them happy?
If you're on the spectrum and feel generally happy or content: do you have a routine, specific coping mechanism(s) or special life conditions that you recommend or feel privileged with? Did you feel happier after excluding some particular element of stress in some way?
If you're on the spectrum and feel generally unhappy: do you think there could be a happy existence for you if society enabled it?

Hi to all :)
I'm a former PhD student from Italy. I left academic career two years ago. Mainly for health problems (probable meniere's and intrusive tinnitus). Now I want to try again to enter into the academic field. I study philosophy and I'm interested in aestethic of music and political philosophy.Tinnitus is very intrusive and prevent me to concentrate on my studies. Is there anyone here that suffer from it and can give me some advice on how to manage it? Thanks a lot :) :)
abuse, sexual harassment, Verso Books
"I would not air private conversations publicly if it did not in my opinion speak to Verso’s attitude towards the incident, towards me, and towards their supposed feminist worker solidarity... It is outrageous that they would blame me for the long meetings I supposedly caused by having the audacity to be angry."
The video of my essay exists!
It is me discussing care ethics and neoliberalism. It is a combination of my voice and everyone in the collective's voices as well as readers.
My review of Stefano Predelli's 'Fictional Discourse' has been published in Analysis.
OK, so the literature review is a diatribe, but the subfields need it!
My first wholly qualitative research with participants got published today (but 2020? What gives?)
