Quote reblogged from Sociology Is Power with 27 notes

There is one public that will not disappear
before we do-our students. Every year we cre-
ate approximately 25,000 new BAs, who have
majored in sociology. What does it mean to
think of them as a potential public? It surely does
not mean we should treat them as empty vessels
into which we pour our mature wine, nor blank
slates upon which we inscribe our profound
knowledge. Rather we must think of them as
carriers of a rich lived experience that we elab-
orate into a deeper self-understanding of the
historical and social contexts that have made
them who they are. With the aid of our grand tra-
ditions of sociology, we turn their private trou-
bles into public issues. We do this by engaging
their lives not suspending them; starting from
where they are, not from m; starting from
where they are, not from where we are.
Education becomes a series of dialogues on the
terrain of sociology that we foster -a dialogue
between ourselves and students, between stu-
dents and their own experiences, among students
themselves, and finally a dialogue of students
with publics beyond the university. Service
learning is the prototype: as they learn students
become ambassadors of sociology to the wider
world just as they bring back to the classroom
their engagement with diverse publics.3 As
teachers we are all potentially public sociolo-
gists.
— Michael Burawoy, “Public sociology” (via socio-logic)

Just Another Day

Each morning as I roll from bed,

I wonder what will lie ahead.

What will I face out there today?

Welcome to the life of an RA.

Tornado warnings, fire drills,

Someone who took a chance with sleeping pills.

Broken glass and broken hearts,

Quote reblogged from We made it this far, kid. with 74,084 notes

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

Senior project.

My research deals with the  intergenerational transmission of trauma through the holocaust in the Jewish culture and how it relates to Jewish identity  It is funny,  people always say that  you chose research on something that we have a connection too, in a more spiritual sense i think perhaps we do research on something that we need closure or an explanation for.  Regardless, my research has given me the chance to reflect not only on my culture/religion but also on how the history of my family has affected me a person. As many  American Jews, my genology has been fragmented and vauge, I know that I am from Russia and romania and Hungarian. Yet, where my ancestors lived, what they did, who they maried and if they moved to America are all unknown.  I am in part an orphan to the my past, disjointed by the shadows of evil and unknown. Through this academic journey, I have learned or more so confirms that five of the nine children of my father’s great grandparents were killed while in Russia as a result of them being Jewish. although it has always been assumed that the ancestors of my parents who did not immigrate were all killed, learning that they were actually murdered has a very different feeling. I guess I was not expecting it, but it feels almost like heaviness in my heart. Which seems strange to have such an emotional reaction towards these almost strangers whose names are unknown, pictures and faces unseen and stories untold. I guess it is just further showing or reaffirming that the trauma is still there. Regardless, I am excited for the rest of research and am excited for the rest of this journey both academically and personally.
