field study

anonymous asked:

My biggest crush and I just made out engagement official this past November! He supports me in going to college, even though I'm 1600 miles away and am studying a field he has a lot of disdain for (journalism, he's from a different country so he's grown up with mistrust of it). He says he knows that I can change the face of journalism and the world and always reads my stories. I love him so much ❤

Do you think there may be wizarding schools in other european countries, like italy (yep, totally random, not my country at all °w° )?

definitely! in my head it’s something like this:

  • hogwarts as we know is up in scotland and takes students from the uk and ireland
  • beauxbatons is somewhere near the south of france and I reckon takes students from france, belgium, luxembourg, and switzerland
  • there’s a school somewhere in spain that takes spanish and portuguese students. they probably learn a lot about harmony between religion and magic
  • another school up in germany that encompasses germany, austria, netherlands, switzerland, and belgium. I think they probably have a much bigger emphasis on muggle studies than hogwarts does, probably looking at the rise of grindelwald and hitler in equal measure
  • a scandinavian school in norway or sweden which also takes iceland, denmark, and finland. definitely a big emphasis on magical creatures here. I like to think they have a lot of field trips to study creatures in their natural habitat, or maybe going to copenhagen to compare the little mermaid statue to mermaids they’ve studied
  • a school for the countries around the adriatic so italy, croatia, bosnia and herzegovina, greece, montenegro, albania, macedonia (though it’s primarily italy and greece) with a huge emphasis on history of magic. also languages, I’m thinking ancient greek and latin- maybe studying how latin is used in spells? and definitely have a mythology class of some sort
  • Durmstrang is somewhere in the region of bulgaria and probably also takes students from romania, serbia, kosovo, bosnia and herzegovina, albania 
  • central european school probably in poland with students from czech republic, slovenia, slovakia, hungary. I kind of hope they study home spells and stuff because that should really be covered at hogwarts! learning how to make pierogi by magic and that sort of stuff!
  • and finally an eastern european school over in russia which also takes kids from estonia, latvia, lithuania, belarus, and ukraine. there’s lots of animals in slavic folklore so maybe there’s a higher emphasis on that? things like training familiars or learning to become animagi as part of the curriculum

Hello! I was wondering if you could recommend articles or books for someone who is not an anthropologist but would love to be one. It could be of any topic, but friendly towards someone who doesn't have an advance knowledge in this study field. Maybe you could recommend your favorite first articles/books that made you fall in love more with anthropology when you were just starting to study it. Thank you! P.s. I LOVE your blog; I have learned so much and it's really entertaining 😊

Thank you!! This is a tough question, and I hope others comment some other sources.

These are in no particular order. Just the order I remembered them. 

Any article you can look at that’s from a major anthro journal like American Anthropologist or American Ethnologist or things like that is also good. A lot of the ones I want to recommend are actually from queer theory, not anthropology. I tried limiting it to that field specifically. Actually I lied some are queer theory good luck figuring out which. 

Anything by any of these authors is also worthy. 

You may be able to find a lot of these as PDFs online but you didn’t hear it from me. 

Edit: you can also find films or short videos featuring a lot of these people, especially Chomsky

Nessian Parallels

Nesta’s throat bobbed. “Please.” I didn’t think I’d ever heard that word from her mouth. “Please—do not leave us to face this alone.”
The eldest queen remained unmoved. I had no words in my head.
We had shown them … we had … we had done everything. Even Rhys was silent, his face unreadable.
But then Cassian crossed to Nesta, the guards stiffening as the Illyrian moved through them as if they were stalks of wheat in a field.
He studied Nesta for a long moment. She was still glaring at the queens, her eyes lined with tears—tears of rage and despair, from that fire that burned her so violently from within. When she finally noticed Cassian, she looked up at him.
His voice was rough as he said, “Five hundred years ago, I fought on battlefields not far from this house. I fought beside human and faerie alike, bled beside them. I will stand on that battlefield again, Nesta Archeron, to protect this house—your people. I can think of no better way to end my existence than to defend those who need it most.”
I watched a tear slide down Nesta’s cheek. And I watched as Cassian reached up a hand to wipe it away.

 I was quote flicking for writing purposes but I think this part is interesting for a reason that…Has never really been talked about. But I think it’s incredibly important that at no point in this scene does Cassian say ‘you’. He does not say ‘I will protect you’ he says that he will protect her house, her people. He will protect what is important to her. 

Nesta in this scene implores the queens not to forsake them but instead to help them. She says that there is no way they will all be able to evacuate (’they’ meaning all of the humans beneath the wall. All of them) She asks the queens not to abandon them. Not her and Elain. Not her household. Not her estates. Not even her town. All of them. People. Her people. 

And what Cassian says and does that so moves her and is so important to her is not that he will defend her. He doesn’t swear that he’ll be her shield and stand before her and ensure she is protected. He swears to return to war, to stand on a battlefield again, to fight- his kind and hers side by side again as it once was- to defend her people, those who cannot fight for themselves. 

And this is…Even more interesting because this is what Nesta does, and has always done, as well. 

Nesta would buy Elain time to run. Not my father, whom she resented with her entire steely heart. Not me, because Nesta had always known and hated that she and I were two sides of the same coin, and that I could fight my own battles. But Elain, the flower-grower, the gentle heart … Nesta would go down swinging for her.

This is really, really early on in ACOTAR but it gets overlooked a lot, I think, and leads to Nesta being misunderstood a lot as well. I’ve meta’d a lot on Nesta and Feyre before and I’ve pointed out that Feyre would probably have either resented Nesta for trying to take over and not letting her do what needed to be done or just been downright baffled for it. Nesta doesn’t bother fighting for Feyre here because she knows Feyre is more than capable of doing that herself. She’ll fight instead for Elain - Elain who can’t fight or defend herself in that way. And we see this again when Nesta goes to the Wall for Feyre because something felt wrong. Something about Tamlin and the lie he sold Feyre didn’t sit right with her and so when her sister actually did need her, Nesta tried to find her. (Which very neatly parallels Feyre warning Nesta of Tomas as well - because there was something wrong there too but that’s another meta) 

The point is that Cassian here not only recognises that Nesta does not need anyone to fight her battles for her, and would likely hate them if they tried (this is..a big part of why she and Feyre clash. Nesta resents having to rely on her little sister, she resents Feyre doing this thing that she can’t and looking after her - looking after all of them) and Cassian gets that. 

This woman does not need anyone to fight for her or protect her or coddle her. They understand each other He fights for the same reasons and the same kinds of people that she fights for: those who cannot fight themselves. 

TL;DR: Cassian does not promise to fight her battles for her. He promises to fight her battles with her.

Hey, here’s a message to all you people out there studying stuff in the humanities like English or history or art or film or theater or any of subjects that are often ridiculed or devalued because they’re not STEM or a professional degree: keep doing what you’re doing. Keep studying that subject that you really love because the world needs people like you. It needs people who will give us art and music and theater. It needs people who will study our past to better prepare for the future. It needs people who look deeply at human creations and who understand what it means to be human. And it also needs people who love what they study and continue to do so despite the challenges brought on by people who don’t get it. We need that passion to stay so that the creative expressions of then and now aren’t lost. Please keep studying the arts and humanities as long as you can. Don’t let discouragement that you’re not in a STEM field stop you from studying and loving what you do.
