How Sociologists Made Themselves Irrelevant Early in 2014, President Obama announced a new initiative, My Brother’s Keeper, aimed at alleviating the problems of black youth. Not only did a task force appointed to draw up the policy agenda not include a single professional sociologist, but I could find no evidence that any sociologist was even consulted in the critical first three months of the group’s work, summarized in a report to the president, despite the enormous amount of work sociologists have done on poverty and the problems of black youth. Sadly, this situation is typical because sociologists have become distant spectators rather than shapers of policy. In the effort to keep ourselves academically pure, we’ve also become largely irrelevant in molding the most important social enterprises of our era. We need to reinvigorate public sociology. Not only have sociologists been nervous Nellies in avoiding cultural explanations, they’ve mostly shied from engaging in public discourse.

Academic Kindness When I first met the professor who would be working through a research project, my BA and now MA I didn’t remember his name right a way. Whereas he learnt my name and said hello the day after the second class. When that happened I thought to myself that I should pay attention to him. One year later he asked me to join his research group, where I not only learn to love research but met wonderful people. He was a great boss, always available to talk, worried that the BA students where learning and producing something by themselves and not only collecting data (something very common in my university).

The Top Five Crowdsourcing Mega-trends I had my eyes opened to the massive growth of the crowdsourcing industry at a SXSW panel earlier this year. Ever since then, I have been looking for an opportunity to bring more information on this trend to {grow}. I’m fortunate today to have an expert on the subject, David Bratvold, provide a guest post:

Communications From Elsewhere 1. Fellini and Marxist capitalism “Sexual identity is intrinsically unattainable,” says Bataille; however, according to Finnis[1] , it is not so much sexual identity that is intrinsically unattainable, but rather the collapse, and thus the fatal flaw, of sexual identity. Wilson[2] suggests that the works of Fellini are empowering. However, the primary theme of Geoffrey’s[3] analysis of the constructivist paradigm of discourse is a mythopoetical whole.

The Machine to be Another BE ANOTHER LAB is an interdisciplinary art collective dedicated to investigate embodied and telepresence experiments. We believe that the understanding of the “self” is related to the understanding of the “Other” and that more than individuals, we are part of a broader system called humanity.

The Secret Shame of the Scholarly Writer Academic writing is a craft—a set of practices that can be learned and should be shared. Yet for generations we have wrapped academic writing in mystery and shamed those who struggle with it. So when our writing isn’t happening, we are afraid to ask for help. This has to change. We need to do a better job of helping ourselves—and each other—learn to hone our craft. My suggestions so far have focused on taming techniques, protecting your time, making a space for writing, and allocating energy.
