new guest blogger policy

If you have an idea for a blog post, send it in. We’d like to hear about sociology, management, economics, political science, and related fields. If you have comments on the academic profession, we’ll consider those as well. But please read the archives and make sure we haven’t done it.

  1. Hi Fabio,

    If you’re interested in any of the content here, i’d be happy to share.

    Further, would love to have the reverse occur too, where you post there.

  2. I would be interested in writing/seeing a post on sociolinguistics. The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis suggests that the language we speak (and think) affects our perceptions and evaluations of people/ideas/objects. It has received some support, and I would be interested to explore what it means for orgtheory.

  3. Have you ever thought of blogging about ferrets?

  4. I would be in favor of some candid posts from Graham Peterson. And this is in all seriousness. I’m not a GP supporter/detractor either way, but I think there’s something to be learned about his experiences/reception in sociology both on this site and elsewhere (if he’s willing to share, of course). If you want to get technical about it, I think there’s much that could be said about discipline norms, the extension of frontstage/backstage to the web, etc. Just a suggestion.

  5. Graham has been a guest poster before, so he probably doesn’t need that elaborate a defense to do it again.

  6. I’d rather hear from one of the 100s of other first year graduate students who don’t already have a blog of their own, post to soc jobs rumor mill, or tweet regularly. Their experiences with discipline norms, navigating frontstage/backstage, etc are no less valid.

    Or ferrets. Critical realist ferrets.

  7. Ferrets can’t come unless there are Open Borders.

    But seriously, if you’re interested in the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, you might want to watch one of Lera Boroditsky’s presentation on some of the work she’s done in the last decade. For instance:

  8. Peterson is pretty played out at this point. Instead…

    -bring back Michael Marotta
    -play Baseboll
    -guest post Sherkat!
    -more estrogen
    -institute flame-war with Family Inequality over the gayz or the womens, taking a position to Cohen’s left
    -tilt a 40 on Scatterplot’s grave
    -guest post Eric Grollman!
    -bring Teppo out of retirement by replacing Sunday jazz clips with 80s Suomi hardcore
    -guest post Mark Regnerus!
    -Davis v. Morgan II, but this time force them to take and debate positions in Cuvier v. Geoffroy (1830)
