As I mentioned here a few weeks ago, I am excited to say that I have started a new, FULL TIME job as the Science Education Writer at Science News for Students!
I’m over at Neurotic Physiology today, asking about the new normal. Everything that’s been happening the last week has shaken our faith in who we are, what we thought we had.
Please Welcome Guest Post , from my old stomping grounds at U Penn, Caleph Wilson! Diversity has become a watchword in the scientific community.
Please welcome our fifth guest post, from AmasianV! In the aftermath of SciAm’s recent snafu handling of DNLee’s post, in which she recounted her interaction with an editor who called her an “urban whore,” Sci asked me to guest blog for a series of posts aimed at getting more diverse voices heard.
Of course, latin-american foreigners are minorities in Pittsburgh. And that is totally fine. Yes, it can be challenging but also rewarding and awesome.
Guest Post 3: If these blogs could talk: characterizing power, privilege, and everyday life in the sciences
Please welcome the next guest group, the Microaggression Tumblr! The discussions sparked by the recent removal of DNLee’s blog post about her treatment by a member of the scientific community is a great teaching moment on how marginalization in the sciences, or any sector of society, operates in everyday life.
Please welcome the second in the guest post series, the fantastic D-list monktress, Hermitage! So, I’m one of the ‘bloggers you’ve never heard of’ that Scicurious has graciously invited to be part of her diversity guest post series.
Please welcome the first of this week’s guest bloggers, Rim! Hello lovers, When Sci asked me to guest blog for her week of diversity, I was at first flattered but then I had a few moments of hesitation.
If you’ve been on the Scientific American network at all over the past weekend, or on twitter for that matter, you can’t have missed all that’s been going on.
I’m over at Neurotic Physiology today for Friday Weird Science! You might think that oral sex, though possibly fun, wouldn’t be a very evolutionarily USEFUL thing to do.
