quick update on my life for the ten people who still follow this tumblr : i’m starting my phd in anthro at UCI this fall! full funding for 6 years (with a possible 7th year of funding if needed) and studying with eleana kim who, along with tobias hubinette, has basically been my intellectual crush since i started doing adoption research. nuts to think i will be over 40 by the time i finally finish my phd (that ten year “detour” in korea really set back my phd timeline 😂) but nonetheless i consider myself so lucky to get paid to study something i’m interested in with someone whose work i respect and am excited by (also, sorry i’m so bad at tumbl-ing but i have a two year old and that’s my excuse!) i may start a new tumblr about phd'ing and mom'ing at the same time (since i’m clearly so good at keeping up with this tumblr) 🙈
Thanks for the clarification. I did read the Hubinette article but I was severely confused because you referred to him as a "class bastard" and I couldn't discern if that meant you were disagreeing with him and then completely lost the tone of the argument. You have no idea how many long things I've read that seem progressive but are somehow supposed to be sarcastic so I was a bit alarmed. I think you make an exceptional that the Roma wouldn't be in bad conditions in the first place.
