Thread on being told we must policing our language skillz or it will cost us our voice.

A huge discussion broke out on the Idle No More OFFICIAL Facebook page today. An 'Ally' decided it was finally time to let us all know that after reading our comments on that page, ...2/
...it was time we heard that unless we start learning how to employ proper English most of our allies will simply, summarily dismiss our efforts. He really felt he was doing us a favor.

When he received the pushback he so earned, the number of other 'allies' on that page .../3
... who apparently feel the same way, chirped up in support & also advised us this was not racist in any way - just a fact of life. It was clear they honestly believed that, & they clung to conclusion despite some pretty clear education from those of us who are aware of ...4/

This is the story of a lifetime, perhaps the story of our fore fathers.

It transcends generations and has altered the path of many past, present and future generations.

A thread.
#Thehoneymoonplanner #history
It all started in a small coastal town located between Lagos and Seme border, Benin Republic. This town was founded in 1425 A. D (history, of course recorded it was by European merchants) even though the natives refered to it as "Agbedegreme’ meaning Agbede’s farm.
The natives believed it was founded by a famous farmer called ‘Agbedeh’ who lived at Gberefu Sea Beach and maintained a farm land. The word was later coined to Agbadarigi by the Yoruba's. Then our European uncles having language barrier as a challenge called it "Badagry"

Pocas veces escribo un #hilo, y la ciudad de Ani merece el suyo: (antes de pasar al siguiente tuit, RETUITEA por favor, que el mundo conozca la efímera grandeza de este lugar) #Patrimonio #Heritage #Arquelogía #Historia #Archaeology #History #Cities #cuidades
La ciudad de Ani está situada en la actual Turquía, muy cerca de la frontera turco-armenia. Y es que fue la capital de la Armenia medieval, allá por el siglo X
En la época de mayor esplendor de la ciudad más de 100.000 habitantes llegaron a pasear por sus calles. Llegó a tener la importancia de ciudades como Bagdad, El Cairo o Constantinopla. Este es el símbolo de la ciudad

This #ManufactureOfDoubt script has been used by the #formulaindustry from the very beginning. You can see it from 19th century advertisements through today. The script is a #social one, exactly as @prof_goldberg says - and where #culturalideologies & #politicaleconomy intersect.
Perfect for some #anthropological analysis. In case of #formulamarketing, the social script for #ManufactureofDoubt exploits & enhances existing #culturalideologies of anxiety abt #breastfeeding which have been around since late 19th cent among white, upper class women & spread
#Biomedicalization of #childbirth & #infantfeeding played a key part in deepening these anxieties & facilitated the #normalization of #infantformula by mid 20th cent, esp via medical experts & hospital practices that entailed routine separation & scheduled feeding

Thinking about how to explain #publichistory and #digitalhistory scholarship to colleagues on academic #tenure and promotion committees, especially those who are used to sole-authored books as the gold standard #dh #digitalhumanities 1/15
The core of the work is familiar: conceptualization, research, and writing (even if the ultimate presentation is not in the form of prose). The work is original and interpretive, just like traditional monographic scholarship. 2/15
But #publichistory’s attention to #sharedauthority means that the work is developed in cooperation with the public, a process that sometimes provokes conflict and controversy that the scholar has to manage. Sometimes great potential projects can’t come to fruition. 3/15

As @fred_burton remembers #Bush41, one event sticks out in his mind.

A thread ⬇️
"One cold November night in 1981, I reported for midnight duty protecting #Bush41 and his family at their residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.
That night, the #intelligence division of the @SecretService passed out a photocopy of a warning that a hit team backed by #Libya had been reported headed for the #UnitedStates as part of a plot to attack senior U.S. government officials.

My novel #TailoftheBlueBird has a fictional #Kenyan character called #Gawana who has run away from home to escape #British brutality. He's a vital sub character for me, but I'm often asked by Euro-readers who notice him: how is that possible? Nothing bad happened in Kenya! Well..
You can read more about things like the #DilutionTechnique used by the Brits to 'subdue' the #Kikuyu in this @guardian piece: theguardian.com/news/2016/aug/… Other sources reveal varied sexual assaults, which echo in my story Scotch Bonnets from #TheCityWillLoveYou. Writers hide research
Writers hide a whole lot of research, but it's those snippets from history that add ballast to our work. It's why I always say a book is the beginning of a conversation (more on that later) and as readers we can always do more. In fact I think I love being a reader more... #books

I sometimes feel @georgialibs don't get enough high quality, academic press #history & #sociology books. Using the GA Pines automated system, people who are members of participating libraries can get a number of very good books which have recently come to my attention.
"The oldest living things in the world" by Rachel Sussman gapines.org/eg/opac/record…. This photo essay book is a beautiful, mind-expanding paean to our biosphere. (I realize this is a #science #ecology book)

Midway through Ronald Kahn's wonderful book 'The Future of Investment Management'.

The 1st half is solely focused on the evolution of investment management through the last 4 millennia.

And rightly so. Because #history matters.

A quick summary below.

[Retweet if helpful]
Investing as we know it today did not exist before the stock market crash of 1929 & the Great Depression that followed.

Slack regulations, inadequate company disclosures & the general inability to systematically analyse investments kept most investors out of the market.
This state of affairs, however, was soon changed by gurus like Graham, Dodd, Markowitz, Sharpe, Burr, Ross, & others who provided a systematic framework to analyse securities, define risk, & efficiently manage portfolios.

I’m reading. ##Christianity in #India #History
When the Raja of Malabar spoke about how he wanted all religions to CO-exist , Menzes asked him to embrace Christianity. Raja responded- “If God had wished me be a Christian, I should have been so from my birth.” ..

Menzes writes- this has been Hindoos response to missionary
Portuguese Archbishop Menzes writes about #Hindus - “They believe that all religions come come from God, and conduct to the same end. The Brahmins believed the difference between their religion and that of Portuguese was abstinence from animal food. AD 1599

Do you recognize this baby?

Hint: he was the last Emperor of Russia. #history
Tsarevich Nicholas Alexandrovich, later Tsar Nicholas II.

His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse.
He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905).

Approximately two thousand Nazis were marching to the Feldherrnhalle, in the city center, when they were confronted by a police cordon, which resulted in the death of 16 Nazis and four police officers.
Hitler, who was wounded during the clash, escaped immediate arrest and was spirited off to safety in the countryside. After two days, he was arrested and charged with treason.

Macedonians lived in compactness at their historical and ethnical territory up to the Balkans` wars from Shara to the river Bistrica, from Aegean Sea to the river Mesta, Prespa and Ohrid Lake

Maкедонија Балкански војни #историја #history МКД MK
Macedonians were majority at their territory. Macedonia had its ethnical sign and Macedonian ethnical feature. Macedonian ethnical feature gave special status to Macedonian language. Macedonian language was the most used one up to 1913 besides the fact that Turkish was official

I knew that a massacre took place during 1947. But when I started to read up on the subject, it shocked me to see just how unaware we are about the "Nakba" that took place & the tales of horror it caused & most of all how the narrative got distorted by the perpetrator.

#Kashmir
Because how can this crime, nothing less than a genocide, be so ignored outside of the area? How can massacres, several hundred thousands killed & a million forced to flee, not even render a whisper in our history books?

#Kashmir
It is time to lift this historical injustice to the surface & give the victims the right to own their stories.
I have collected some articles dealing with the forgotten massacres & expulsion of the Kashmiri people. Each article has a short intro or quotes from content.

1...#QCHistoryEngages On why I chose an MA in Library Science and History - My love of History was not sparked from a single visit to a museum, but rather continuous interactions with educational institutions.
2...My first memory of such a place was a visit to the @FloridaMuseum in Gainesville. The two exhibits I recall from the trip were displays on #bats and #dinosaurs, two things many 8 year olds enjoy. Still have the bat book from the trip.
3...My parents would always encourage visits to the #library as I had an interest for reading from a young age (not sure how they inspired that from the beginning - gladtheydid). This turned into an opportunity for me to discover new topics such as astronomy and other sciences.
