Every once in a while i send out these notes about what’s on Jotwell (their tag line: Things we like – Lots; from their mission “We are not afraid to be laudatory, nor do we give points for scoring them. Rather, we challenge ourselves and our colleagues to share their wisdom and be generous with their praise. We will be positive without apology.”). The whole mission statement is here – consider reading it. It makes a lot of sense, on info glut/scholarship glut, scholarly communities, and on celebrating and sharing work we like.
Here are some treats over there at the moment (first link is to the Jotwell “jot” of <1000 words but Second link, where there is one, is to whole article):
From Carole Silver: DIVERSITY, GOLF, AND THE RULES OF THE (LEGAL CAREER) GAME Bryant Garth and Joyce S. Sterling, Diversity, Hierarchy, and Fit in Legal Careers: Insights from Fifteen Years of Qualitative Interviews, 31 Geo. J. Legal Ethics 123 (2018).
One of them is from me, but it’s not about me so that’s ok: PLANNING FOR A POST NEOLIBERAL FUTURE Silvana Tapia Tapia, Feminism and Penal Expansion: The Role of Rights Based Criminal Law in Post-Neoliberal Ecuador, Feminist Legal Studies (2018).
