Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

1· 🤔 On voit des enseignant·es faire cours les jours de #grève, organiser le #distanciel ou profiter des journées de #mobilisation pour avancer sur leur HDR : ne pensez-vous pas que nous avons quelques raisons de mettre l'#université et la #recherche à l'arrêt ?

2· ‼️ D'abord, il y a le saccage des #retraites, ces deux années de #travail que le gouvernement veut nous extorquer.
Personne n'est dupe : cette contre-réforme injuste et injustifiée aggravera les #inégalités, notamment entre femmes et hommes 🤬
Infos 👇…
3· 😡 Cette réforme aggravera donc les inégalités entre travailleuses et travailleurs de l'#ESR, et elle aura des effets spécifiques pour des chercheur·ses dont la carrière a été marquée par la #précarisation et l'#internationalisation 😱

... as old as #modernity – the rich and powerful create #problems for all of us, then tell us we’re all to blame. But are we? And just who, in any case, is ‘#we’?"
"The #Anthropocene concept has graced the cover of The Economist magazine and received the blessing of The New York Times’ editorial board – for the very sound reason that anthropogenic arguments obscure capitalogenic realities." #Science/#Society

Please read Franklin’s thread above. The whole thing. About comic books. And then imagine it wasn’t comic books, but historical photographs of enslaved people. That someone buys & makes into a “collection” on IG. And then publicizes it right before his movie on enslavement drops.
Based on @franklinleonard’s thread above, I went to IG. Imagine my disgust in finding that @JoeyMcFarland, #Emancipation producer, has branded his newly acquired photos of enslaved people as the #McFarlandCollection, & started posting right after @Emancipation wrapped filming.

#OTD in 1863 Andrew Johnson freed the enslaved people at his home in Greenville, Tennessee. Johnson was the state's Military Governor at the time. All enslaved people were emancipated in Tennessee on October 24, 1864. A 🧵 about Jonson's complicated legacy regarding slavery. Andrew Johnson's home in Greenville, Tennessee.
Johnson was born into a poor family in Raleigh, North Carolina and grew up resenting the enslaving elite. His resentment did not keep him from enslaving others as an adult when he gained the financial ability to do so. In fact, Johnson very much supported slavery.
According to @flingsarahe, Johnson enslaved at least 5 individuals according to the 1860 slave schedule. Evidence suggests that Johnson was the father of two enslaved people named Liz and Florence. Their mother, Dolly, was listed as "black" while her children were "mulatto." Dolly with one of the Johnson children.

Can we all have a serious bipartisan conversation around the history of immigration in America and it’s impact on #ADOS? The Immigration Act of 1864 was one of Lincoln’s most signature pieces of legislation prior to the #EmacipationProclomation of 1865.…
“This law legalized and bureaucratized labor recruitment practices similar to indentured servitude to encourage immigration to the United States and economic development.”
“Although many poor Europeans had arrived as indentured servants during the colonial period, the practice had ended in the 1820s.”Congress repealed this law in 1868 after protests by labor organizations.…

#EmancipationDay has been recognized by the federal government. In this series, I urge Quebec to do the same. The province has the the second largest black population in Canada and much remains to be done to respect their realities.…
#EmancipationDay Image
1-New generations of Black leaders in Quebec are working carefully to build dialogue between Black communities, whether they be continental, Caribbean, anglophone or francophone… #polican
📷 @RosemarySadlier🙏🏿
2-Although Black communities are divided by their histories, trajectories, geographical locations within Canada, class dynamics and diverse beliefs, they still face many of the same challenges.

#anarchisme #libéralisme #libertarianisme #économie #propriété #don #contredon #Graeber #étatisme #échange #monnaie #capitalisme

Ne laissons pas aux (pro-)#capitalistes libéraux·les, "libertarien·ne·s", "anar"caps le #monopole de la #liberté #économique.

Thread :
Je suis #anarchiste.

Pas "anar"cap. Véritablement anarchiste.

L'anarchisme est un mouvement qui prône l'abolition de l’#État, du #capitalisme, du cléricalisme, et des systèmes de domination basés sur l'identité (patriarcat, privilège blanc,… voire spécisme).

J'adhère à ça.
L'#anarchisme est donc pour un maximum de #liberté pour tou·te·s et chacun·e.

Certes, il prône souvent la #coopération entre les #individus, mais ça n'est jamais au mépris de leur #émancipation personnelle. Au contraire.

Il me paraît qd même contradictoire que l'idée d'#Universalisme repose aux yeux de certains en grande partie sur celle de #Francophonie.
TOUT peuple, TOUTE culture qui cherche à diffuser préférentiellement SES racines propres fait œuvre de #colonialisme intellectuel.
J'aime ma langue, mais je ne la crois ni plus universelle, ni plus riche que les autres.
Je critique vivement la mainmise de l'anglais (en fait #globish) sur la communication internationale.
Je SAIS que toute politique de rayonnement linguistique d'une sphère culturelle ⤵️
tte politique de promotion linguistique possède 2 faces:
- l'enrichissement culturel des publics-cibles
- l'arrière-pensée que les apprenants deviennent des "amis", + favorables aux discours ou échanges venant de ladite sphère linguistique et culturelle que d'ailleurs. ⤵️

As we celebrate #Juneteenth, it is important to remember that not all slaves were freed on June 19th, 1865. In Indian Territory, Blck slaves continued to be owned by Chickasaw and Choctaw masters. They weren’t freed until 1866. #BlackLivesMatter (thread)
#Juneteenth is supposed to represent the day that all slaves in the United States were freed from bondage.
However, slaves in #IndianTerritory in present day #Oklahoma were exempt from the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments because they were owned by masters of separate sovereign nations. So they remained enslaved event after the 13th Amendment was passed.

Qqs grands moments de la discussion autour de l'ouvrage «Une histoire populaire de la France, de la guerre de 100 ans à nos jours», en présence de son auteur @GerardNoiriel, de @LarrereMathilde, spécialiste des mvts sociaux du 19e siècle et @UsulduFutur, vidéaste @OLGuillemets.
Cet événement était organisé par la section « Le Vent se lève » de @ScPoLyon. Ces tweets veulent restituer différents axes de réflexion soulevés par la discussion autour de l'ouvrage. Ils sont avant tout introductifs et invitent à une lecture attentive & approfondie de l'ouvrage.
@GerardNoiriel revient d'abord sur sa posture de chercheur : il ne pense pas son ouvrage comme « politique » : il dit défendre une « autonomie de la recherche » par rapport au politique et à la politique, tout en se définissant comme un « historien engagé ».
