The Philosophy department at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (where I work) is inviting applications for an Assistant Professor without Review (non-tenure track position) in Ethics: https://philosophy.ubc.ca/job-opportunities/assistant-professor-without-review-ethics/ #UBC #philosophy
I'm in a reading group on Øystein Linnebo's 'Thin Objects'.
Best practices for pronoun badges at academic conferences?
Hey I'm talking with a colleague who's organizing an academic conference and we're thinking through how to do this
What we came up with is:
* Provide he/she/they stickers and also blank ones/sharpies
* Explain that they are non-mandatory but encouraged
* Request that cis people do not use blank pronoun badges to make a joke
Am I missing something really obvious?
I have heard the opinion that Electron is best avoided. Is there something I can read to learn why people think that?
Context: I was recommended this: https://www.zettlr.com/
I like a lot of things about it, based on a quick look. Although it's a layer of complication over just using Vim and Pandoc.
Looking for relevant research:
Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.
One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?
It has made me wonder whether something that otherwise looks like an arbitrary choice in a classic paper is an unremarked move to block the kind of argument I wanted to make. Which is at least interesting.
I'm editing an open book available publicly available on web & also downloadable in PDF & ebook. I have a question about the accessibility of how I'm doing premises and conclusions for philosophical arguments with ordered lists <ol>.
