MAJOR DISCOVERY: I was shocked when I found this document in the archives about sex & intimacy between men in the 1840s. I’m thrilled @NewYorker published to show we were here b4 the medical invention of homosexuality. We created worlds & I found one! https://t.co/dmm712WVHS

Me: Four years into my Ph.D program, have a dissertation topic, drafting out multiple chapters, happy with research subject. Jim Downs: Want to hear about 19th Century gay marriages on a prison ship? Me: *Throws dissertation topic out the window* https://t.co/m2a0irzBer

Does anyone have any advice for the "paralyzed by fear" part of the researching/writing process, especially in the summer when there aren't as many hard deadlines with classes? Feels like it takes me hours or even days to build myself up enough to get started.

#BlackatUark is when you get reported to your chair for focusing on Black people in your... Wait for it... INTRO TO AFRICAN AND AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES COURSE

#BlackatUark is when students will call my TA professor and call me Miss

#BlackatUark is when students take your African and African American Studies courses and get upset because they are supposed to be easy A's

As a historian, I fear for what's coming. As a citizen, I'm OUTRAGED at what's here. As an American, I KNOW that we have rights. As a human being, I want JUSTICE.

Listen to my brilliant colleague speak about the history of I-630 & segregation in Little Rock. And let me know if you want to know about the other tactics segs used throughout AR history. “Student Speaker Series: Airic Hughes” https://t.co/p3s54sFQbk via @YouTube

—Me, a PhD in history, lecturing in front of students: “So, let’s return to 1692 as the ...” * 🧠 BRAIN BEGINS TO PANIC. 1692, OK, SO TAKE 16 & ADD ONE SO THAT WOULD BE 17th CENTURY, OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, CRAP, NO IT’S 17TH 🧠* —Me: . . . 17th century comes to a close

THREAD: So many new students are accepting their offers to graduate school (yay!), and they are about to find out that everything is expensive (boo!), so I am creating a list of free resources for academic writing/analysis/life. Please add your favourites to the list!

As colleges respond to #COVID19 by going online & shutting down, remember campus is a sanctuary for many students: the only place they have steady access to food, shelter, safe living quarters, and/or internet to take online classes. Please help those without exit strategies.

If you haven't danced with someone you love in a while or painted or walked among trees or written poetry or sat in awe of a sunset, do that soon.

First year of PhD: this isn't too bad Second year of PhD: this is bearable Third year of PhD: Õ̸̡̧̻̥̟̖͍͈̙͚h̶̡̲̹̟̓ ̸̢͇̋̑̒͌̓̉͝͝I̵̧͕͎̯̟̻̤̅́͌̆̾̌́͠ͅͅ ̴̯̜̫̝̥̘͎̑̎̉̈́̑s̴̤̫̱̜̙̗̹̼̔̕͜ͅe̸̡̻̼̤̹̻̫̲̲̍̍͝͝ë̶̢̢̗̥̦̣̺̪́̓̓̅͗̔̚ ̵̢̲̯̬̮́̅ṉ̸̛̦̱͕̜̈́̃̕͜o̸̢͍̲̳͇͓͒̂̓́̂͘w̸̞̦̠̭̖͇̗̎̈͘͝ #phdchat

After taking an extended break from Twitter, I wanted to finally share with you all that I passed my comprehensive exams! Although it has been a month it still feels surreal, but I couldn’t be more proud of this accomplishment! #firstgen https://t.co/i0D7QP2XkX
