I’ve had an “uneven” experience blogging in the past–insufficient motivation, feeling as though I’m shouting into the void, a lack of coherence. But those lucky souls who follow me on Twitter know I am not a timid poster. I hope this blog will be a venue to curate and expand on academic, political, and personal thoughts I already share on Twitter: papers of interest, news of import, and experiences as I finish my PhD. So, here we go.
