n=11 is fine for a very focused qualitative method case study. I am extremely skeptical about determining huge trends from a group that small though, especially considering the extreme disparities between the high and low ends of the ARL spectrum.
also i get that no one wants to give an honorarium to someone who's gonna bum out an audience
i think a lot of this goes back to LIS professional identity psychology as a very practical field. It is both true that there are things we can do AND limits to what we can, and learning to live with what is beyond repair is too much for a lot of people's psychic loads to handle. Hence the "please end with what we can *do*" requests that organizers have sometimes pleaded with me to include
also i've often felt pressure to "end on a hopeful note or with practical advice" in my climate change work and increasingly I'm like "bruh, I cannot, the only thing that will save us is full on revolution, sorry to sound like such a Marxist"
this looks super intriguing and challenging!!! i've definitely seen how "ethics of care" discourse can be coopted by neoliberal forces. https://www.dukeupress.edu/the-ruse-of-repair
............what is a "confidential letter of recommendation"...? Like I provide names of someone who would write a letter for me but I don't see the letter? Is this some tenure dossier stuff?! THEY USE INTERFOLIO LMAO
nicest hotel breakfast I've ever had though!
i am legit tempted to apply for this just because the one time I gave a talk at the Beinecke it was a mind boggling experience in both very good and very weird ways.
elite special collections research sponsorships blow my mind, what if......... what if I applied for one of these but instead of using Famous Old White Guys Papers I asked to comb through their internal curatorial and acquisition records. This is my real research interest. Beinecke, let me into your accession records.
someone who i greatly admire once told me she appreciates that i am an institutionalist and i didn't really get it but now i do.
dear colleagues, please stop taking out your barely concealed anxiety on your uncompensated colleagues serving in thankless governance leadership roles and please take this to your therapist. i have now been the recipient of this pattern (stuff like not reading minutes, DM'ing me a ton of questions in a row without asking me if I have time to talk, CC'ing me on stuff that isn't my wheelhouse) from 3 different people who normally don't do this and it's exhausting and annoying.
