Also this week: “Get respect for your ideas and blazer choices”, historical context for the March For Science, and more.
A historian argues that the golden age of US government and public support for science and scientists was the Cold War, and that that specific historical moment isn’t likely to be repeated.
As a tenure-track professor I often taught while wearing a blue blazer from the Gap. Still do, actually. So I found this amusing:
Of course, I’m amused for purely coincidental and personal reasons. I recognize that you may or may not be amused, depending on what implicit messages you think this sends. I also recognize that as a guy I’m privileged not to have to worry all that much about what other people will think of my appearance. So I don’t have any serious thoughts on this, but if you have a hot take, fire away.
