I went looking for zombies in #sociology and lived to write a blog post about it!
New #sociology study suggests U.S. “liberals may be uniquely vulnerable to [racist dogwhistles] because they’re afraid to talk about racial inequality.” https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5d5aaec5e4b056fafd0f07e1

I re-read a bit of Burning Chrome yesterday – specifically the short story "The Belonging Kind" – and now I'm thinking of writing a piece on urban scenes through the lens of Caillois' "Mimicry and Legendary Psychasthenia." Sci-fi inspired #sociology is the best kind, after all.
I teach urban studies and digital society.
