Colin is a #Brexiteer. He wanted to be my friend. I accepted but now he is very angry.

Don't be like Colin

Brahmin clout at IITs is ending. At least 30% of the zonal toppers are Baniyas. The ‘Kota Coaching Factory’ is also a Baniya owned phenomenon. Change is welcome. #Sociology #IIT #Caste Thread 🧵⬇️
The IT revolution in its early years was led by the IIT graduates and postgraduates, and most of them were Brahmins. Sociologist Carol Upadhya’s study on the software professionals with 132 respondents in Bengaluru revealed that 48% per of them were Brahmins.
Now things are changing. 
If we take the most valuable IT-based startups that took shape in the last few years, most of them have a strong north Indian Baniya engineers/managers footprints.

La violencia simbólica de Bourdieu, un concepto que luego de ser comprendido cambia tu precepción de la realidad.

Y lo hace porque la detectas en familiares, amigas, pareja, medios de comunicación, películas, canciones...🧵

imagen de extraída de:…
Creo que para entender bien el concepto de violencia simbólica se debe retroceder antes hacia los términos de "natural" o "naturalización". En sociología y, concretamente, en esta explicación dichas palabras son utilizadas para señalar aquellas relaciones de poder ocultas.
Unas relaciones de poder veladas porque se naturalizan y existe una percepción social de ellas normalizada. Sería el clásico eso "siempre ha sido así" o "eso es así desde siempre", o "por naturaleza".

A Thread-
=Good Faith Communication Requires 3 Things:
1. Good faith requires fairly considering as many possible interpretations as possible before responding, giving the benefit of the doubt, and, if none or more than one interpretation makes sense, asking for clarification.
2. Good faith requires a willingness to be corrected and the forthcomingness to acknowledge when and where you were.

@RAYSITI @BeReal_App I think this app is a good conversation starter every single day. It will also trigger group calling because eventually, people will like to discuss the life moments in the photos in detail with each other in their free time. The influencers may decide to
@RAYSITI @BeReal_App celebrate their mundane routine life like photographer Jamie Livingston.
@RAYSITI @BeReal_App In the long run, this app will draw down the FOMO and peer pressure among a group of friends, be more empathetic towards each other and this empathy will turn into a comfort zone that will inspire friends to collaborate over petty ideas.

El 31 de octubre se celebra el día de Halloween (tradición anglosajona), el 1 de noviembre el Día de Todos los Santos (católica) y el 1 y 2 de noviembre el Día de Muertos en Latinoamérica. Todas giran alrededor de la muerte. Así que vamos con un 🧵 sobre sociología de la muerte.
🟣Sociología de la muerte.

Nacemos y morimos, pero entre medias participamos individualmente en esa amalgama de procesos e interrelaciones colectivas que solemos llamar vivir.
Existen diferentes etapas de la vida: nacimiento, infancia, adolescencia y adultez. Todas ellas son vistas desde un punto de vista positivo en la mayoría de ocasiones.

The first thing to understand is that how the problem is defined already entails a solution. There are three main ways in which the problem has been defined and thus three broad strategies for addressing it:
Approach 1
The problem: mangers in charge of hiring and promotion are biased/racist/sexist/classist.

The Solution: change their beliefs OR their behavior (i.e. make their views or their actions less biased, racist, etc)

1/ How to grow a nice juicy CV. Advice for folks at the beginning of the career (with a focus on #sociology).
2/ Before I get into it, a disclaimer: my advice is not relevant for people not focused on publishing, who work in a handful of elite programs, and subfields/methods where there is an emphasis on a few high impact pubs. I will get to these at the end of the thread.
3/ Still, this thread applies to folks teaching in most PhD programs, MA programs, or teaching intensive school that want a balance of research and teaching at time of promotion.

Just out! Movement Texts as Anticolonial Theory in @sociologyjnl.

Many decolonise debates in the university (here #sociology) circumvent anticolonial movements. I show how, and illustrate one way to engage movement thought through their texts.…
To illustrate how we can engage movement texts, I talk about a 1970s underground pamphlet called #Jabal. This section draws on a Teaching Tool about #Jabal that I co-authored with @mmatalpur. Check it out here.…
The paper lays out my reason for co-launching @RevPapers, a transnational research collaboration investigating anticolonial text and prints as sites of Left, anti-imperial, and anti-colonial critical production.

A new report from the LSE’s 'International Inequalities Institute' examines the who, what, & where of UK ‘non-doms’, revealing a complex story of the current British economic elite beyond the attention-grabbing headlines about Russian oligarchs.
#Sociology often faces criticism - especially from the right-wing press & right-wing politicians.

I'm sure it's not a coincidence that sociology is one of the few academic disciplines to have taken Global inequality very seriously, for a very long time.…
'The UK’s ‘non-doms’: Who are they, what do they do, & where do they live?', by Arun Advani, David Burgherr, Mike Savage & Andy Summers', examines & analyses the historical legacies, as well as the contemporary configuration, of global inequality.

Are you starting your career as an assistant professor and guiding #PhD students for the first time?
Here are a few mentoring tips from the perspective of a current PhD student that may help you.

@AcademicChatter @PhDVoice @PhD_Genie #research @PhDsofIndia
1) Never keep lab meetings on Monday, Tuesday and weekends. Putting on Monday or Tuesday will force them to work on weekends. Respect the social life of PhD students. It's also good for their mental wellbeing.

2) Regularly talk about the long term and short term impact that the PhD project is going to produce, like patents, high impact journal papers as well as the societal impact. This will motivate the PhD scholars to work harder, smarter and better.

Who else has experienced an abuse of power in academia? Please share. Eons ago a diss advisor stole my work. I reclaimed it in 2nd ed of Servants of Globalization. Arlie Hochschild rephrased my concept and named it the #carechain, used my data, none of her own. #SOCAF #sociology
For years, until now, my theory is haunted by the assumption that my advisor helped me developed it. She did not. I sound like a bona fide research assistant in her writings when in fact the work she is using was pulled and rephrased from my dissertation #metoo
It is important I did this/do this as a senior woman of color scholar because I am not the first and definitely not the last to experience this in academia.

I'm very grateful to David Polizzi @indianastate for hosting a symposium on A Criminology of Narrative Fiction in the Journal of Theoretical & Philosophical Criminology (JTPCRIM) later this year. #criminology #philosophy #zemiology #aesthetics…
David was the first to publish my research on the criminological values of fiction and JTPCRIM is a repository of 12 years' worth of interesting and innovative #openaccess articles.
I'll be joined by colleagues from @uOttawa, @warwickuni, @QMUL, and @SussexUni in the symposium, across the disciplines of #criminology, #philosophy, and #filmstudies.

1/5: Having been registered with @Scopus in 2019, the @ibidem11 Press book series "Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society" (#SPPS) has, until the end of 2020, accumulated 147 entries in this citation index. @icceesorg @aseeestudies @BASEES @DGO_Berlin @ASN_Org @AAUS_says
2/5: The monographs & volume chapters listed here were published by #SPPS in 2018-20:…. So far, SPPS's ranking in three relevant #Scopus categories "#History," "#PoliticalScience and #InternationalRelations," & "Political Science and #Sociology" is modest.
3/5: Yet, the volumes and papers published in @ibidem11's #SPPS during the last three years will get additional @Scopus quotations during the next years. More monographs and collections are in print and preparation:….

My new article "On Track or Derailed? Race, Advanced Math, and the Transition to High School" in @SociusJournal summarized in tweet form.

A thread:

#Sociology #Soctwitter #mathequity #BlackandSTEM…
Taking advanced math in HS influences academic success, what careers we pursue, and how much $ we make. Studies find racial gaps in who takes Calculus in HS & Algebra I in MS, but there is little research on race and adv math course taking during the transition to HS. 2/
This study uses national data to examine adv math course taking in 9th grade for students on the accelerated track who took Alg I+ in 8th grade and students on the standard track who took <Alg I. I also look at the role of performance factors & parents, teachers & counselors 3/
