@gotanda on birbsite and most other places

Birbsite but long detailed thread on one researcher's method with archives. Reference to vision limitations and accessibility.


It's end of term here in Tokyo and student stopped by my office this morning. She had failed my compulsory first year course twice but finally passed this year. She wanted to say thank you. But she did all the work. (Getting dusty in here.)

Let's see.... a 4 page 2011 review of a 2007 book? Is it any wonder people just pirate the hell out of journals? No thanks, T&F "Taylor and Fuckyou"

This might be of interest to digital humanities folks.

Has anyone tried using the kobo aura one for reading academic papers? I use entirely too much paper printing out pdfs for papers and I'd like to switch to an e-reader but my current nook is too small.

Second year students in Economics in the World class are doing their final small group writing projects in Google Drive. Saves me and them so much time. I can tell at a glance who has been writing and who hasn't made any progress since last Monday. Highlighting good work in one report as an example for others is so easy.

Just booked my ticket to IAFOR Heritage & the City – New York at Hofstra University. "Urban Heritage and the Modern City" looks to be something creative and inspiring and a little bit different from my usual. Really fortunate to have a job which allows me to explore areas I am curious about and continue to keep on learning. (If I get a few things together in time, might just make the presentation submission deadline: August 23, 2018.) hcny.iafor.org/

Reagan was wrong. The most terrifying words in the English language are, “we’ve been sold to private equity.”

Just ran into three students leaving class for lunch. I taught them last year. One said more in 5 min than in a whole semester. Some of it very loudly announcing everything I said to the whole quad. He was clutching an empty pet bottle. I don't think it had had water in it.

Two years after the original Panama Papers leaks, the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung has received a fresh trove of leaked documents from Mossack Fonseca, the now-defunct Panamanian law firm.

To analyze and report on the new data, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has once again organized a collaborative investigation which includes the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and its partner centers

Does anyone know of a program I could use to compare a bunch of bibliographies and easily count the amount of times a source appears?

e.g. I feed in 30 bibliographies and it tallies things up for me, finding that X appeared in 10 bibs, Y 5 times, Z once, etc.
