NGO's, Military, Social Networks, and Civilian Roles in Conflict Resolution

“These Royal Institution Christmas lectures provide the strongest counter-example I know to the conceit that research ideas are too difficult to explain to and too abstruse to excite the general public. Most of us just don’t work hard enough at it.”

"...rape is not a random unpremeditated act but a form of violence by the powerful on those who are powerless, poor and disadvantaged"
Alka Kurian, 'Feminism and the Developing World', in 'Routledge Companion to Feminism and Post-Feminism', 2006

Rape is not a sexual offence, it is a hate crime.

The use of the term "white" (if it is at statistics, it is Caucasian, and indeed Slavic Race or Mediterranean Peoples are the two groups immediatley involved) is becoming increasingly a disparaging comment deserving of legal action for heinous academic behavior. "We've" (I thought that included the groups and individuals using "white" professionally) been asked to refrain from all kinds of terms by all kinds of groups (I've been with "retardation" and its use to hurt individuals), must be "us who are white", and I'd appreciate the same consideration for a change. As the article above said, most "whites" prefer to be called Americans, and I have now had to "revert" to American-Polish (as a cultural minority smaller than "black"). All set yet?! It's been 20 years and it is getting worse. Transition to America done. Julie Ann Racino about.me/julieannracino

What do your think?

As I edit my own article for publication (*ahem* not that it's due tomorrow or anything), I find myself with a question: is it now acceptable to submit scholarly articles whose titles and texts contain cuss words? The Fall 2011 issue of Western Humanities Review contains an article titled "The Humanities, RCM, and Bullshit"; its thesis seems to be that Responsibility Centered Management (be that what it is) is, well, a bunch of bullshit. The cheeky, screed-like tone and clearly subjective writing style ('bullshit' and its synonyms make several appearances throughout) make this article sound more like it belongs in a blog than in a professional publication - but maybe the lines there have been blurred now and I just never caught on.

Alternately, is this also an example of "fast-food scholarship"? Curious...
