"My (Spivak’s) three yeses are 1) yes to reading the text 2) yes to reconstructing its argument 3) yes to what is valuable about that argument. You cannot say “no” until you have achieved those three yeses."

Thanks to @kwazana and Eng (and Spivak!) for sharing this - a lovely, thoughtful approach to reading, particularly in a grad school context. https://t.co/Eip59ags1B

Gonna try to remember two things @prisonculture says today - 1) hope is a discipline. 2) cynicism isn’t generative.

It is both cool and argh that the volume of things I want to attend online is https://t.co/Te4Cl9uZ3k

I just received an email re: Harvard's plans to hire graduate students to continue the Harvard and Slavery research that I worked on for two years as the Harvard and Slavery Research Associate. Since Harvard thrives on obfuscation, let me speak clearly to anyone applying: https://t.co/okM3QinXX1

Quoted @huwlemmey

My boyfriend finds it hilarious to ask Brits if swans are dangerous, because they always answer “yeah they can break your arm!” Apparently this is a belief drilled into Brits alone from birth, and not a universal fear. https://t.co/iRX3wVHIQF

Question: is this a British thing? Cos this is verbatim what I'll say if you mention swans. Do you think of them as dangerous, Americans? https://t.co/qBytcFRb8B

Quoted @RaceEthnicity

.@sethrockman: Anti-black racism was produced in places like New England through the entanglements that by the 19th century increasingly tied lives and livelihood in ie. Rhode Island to the exploitation of enslaved people in places like Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Fascinating stuff from @sethrockman on the racialization of material goods in the late 18th/early 19th century. Taking notes... https://t.co/5SFhgbg4Dq

Call for Volunteers: Haitian Responses to COVID-19: can you help provide info for this project by Lyonette Louis Jacques? She's seeking "help from Hn/Hn-Amer. law librarians & lawyer colleagues... or anyone interested in the impact of COVID-19 in 🇭🇹."🙏🏼 https://t.co/ftOZyVakb6

Fellow #twitterstorians: does anyone know anything about Black South Carolinians who were taken prisoner (and/or enslaved) by the French during the revolutionary war?

"Jones reveals more than 200 years of Black women’s thinking, organizing, and writing about their vision for an inclusive American politics." What a pleasure to talk w @marthasjones_ about #Vanguard for @SmithsonianMag https://t.co/t9SvsIcOtO

#twitterstorians I am pulling together advertisements for food in the 18th-very early 20th c Anglo World (Britain & Empire, US, Canada) for my class - what are some must share ads?

A bronze statue featuring Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony was unveiled in New York’s Central Park Wednesday. The "Women's Rights Pioneers Monument" is the first in Central Park to depict real women. https://t.co/OhxII61j7R

One day, someone will write a article about the history of this statue, and what it tells us about politics and memory in the early 21st century. https://t.co/aIZThhsUDE
