The adjunct crisis and archaeology

succinctresearch

Depending on your sources, between 49 and 66% of all college professors are adjuncts. Full-time, untenured faculty composes 19 percent of professors, which means, at most, only a third of professors are on the tenure track. As a PhD student, I’ve been steadily encouraged to keep up hope about becoming a tenure-track professor; assured that […]

"Get me off your f_____ mailing list!"

Bogus

I’m sure we have all had this sentiment, given the increase in garbage emails inviting us to attend bogus conferences and publish in bogus journals. Fed up with this, two authors created a paper that consists primarily of the phrase “Get me off your f_____ mailing list,” repeated several hundred times. They submitted it to the journal, International Journal of Advanced Computer Technology, whose editor accepted the paper!! This is hilarious. See the nice discussion […]

Mary Church. During the […]

Amazing styling in QGIS 2.6

digital-geography

Since QGIS 2.6 was released with a lot of new features and functions I’ve been testing it sporadic and have come to realise that the quality and functionality of symbol styling and labelling is so high that ESRI ArcMap no longer can match it. Honestly I haven’t tested the 10.3 version of ArcMap, so my experience is based on previous versions. Here I’ll use an example to highlight some of the extensive possibilities offered in […]

Open Access Journal: Rivista di Diritto Romano

ancientworldonline

[First posted in AWOL 6 November 2009. Updated 23 November 2014] Rivista di Diritto RomanoISSN 1720-3694 Qualcuno potrebbe chiedersi se, in presenza di numerosi e autorevoli periodici di diritto romano e diritti dell’antichità pubblicati anche e soprattutto in Italia, fosse proprio il caso di metterne in cantiere uno nuovo: se fosse un lettore tendenzialmente benevolo e animato da incrollabile fiducia nel principio della concorrenza, potrebbe forse dare risposta positiva affermando che l’ingresso di un nuovo […]

#NCSS14: Mapping the Social Studies

esri-e1416693561110

So. Very. Tired. I love social studies but my feet hurt. My brain is full. The back of my head is buzzing from the last of more than several caffeinated drinks. And what seems like an endless series of apparently important meetings (instead of awesome sessions). It’s been a long two days. Too much learning, history nerdness, and Diet Pepsi. Yeah, I know. Pretty much the ultimate in first world problems. One more session today. Then the […]

Morris, Jr., the great great great grandson of Frederick Douglass and great great grandson of Booker T. Washington are sharing stories personal anecdotes about their famous relatives and talking about how their work reflects the legacies of these […]

#NCSS14: Social Media as Inquiry Tool

historytech

An interesting conversation that I joined late. Members of the NCSS Technology Community are working to develop policy and recommendations that they will deliver to the NCSS Board of Directors. It’s an important conversation that I wish we could spend more time with this topic. Very interesting topic. And it’s not just whether or not we use tools, it’s the actual use of the tools. As Dr. Joe O’Brien said, Leaving the house without your […]
