This , I am thinking about how the growing number of people with energy conditions has the potential to transform cultural orientations to time and labour. Cells that refuse energy production are the greatest source of anticapitalist revolutionary wisdom we have. 💜

What a brilliant idea!

Redoing a lecture inspired by history of is extremely fun, I'd only because 1970s and 80s design journals are just a treat to look at 💜

I’m not someone who thinks you need distance in order to write about something. I think you need to be as close as possible. Sometimes this means you’re so close that you’re far away. And sometimes you’re so far away that the writing becomes closer.

Sharing one of my favorite poems since childhood.

By the 12thc warrior poet Xin Qiji 辛棄疾, who was sidelined during peacetime, demoted, drifting through a decade of minor posts in remote lands.

Poetry, then, is that which is left unsaid.
“My, what a cool and lovely autumn.”

@anintegralstate I'm already wishing I said some things better, and remembering why I don't do such things often, but am choosing to think of it as a piece of a necessary conversation rather than a definitive statement 😑

On reflection on listening back to the interview, I should have made the context clearer: in general, it's absolutely not enough to just advocate for awareness and recognition. I emphasised that so much here because of my view that the discipline of history has particular problems with recognising that scholarly work is embodied, beyond its focus on the mystical value of presence in front of sources.

I think history and historians have a lot of work to do on even recognising that disabled historians exist, and I do think that has to be a foundation for any further work -- but it's definitely not enough in itself. I'll pay extra attention to being clear on this in future.

I have just realised my cognitive bandwidth has been exceeded by trying to learn how to use Obsidian at the same time as learning how to get around over here. 😑

I'm on this week's Archive Fever podcast talking about history and disability. Deep gratitude to Yves Rees and Clare Wright for their generosity and willingness to endure my nervousness:

We referred to @bluntshovels 's wonderful essay and to André Brett's and my piece from last year as well as my book on Milton Keynes is a microblogging network supporting scholars and practitioners across the humanities and around the world.
