public sociology

"Academics are living in a fool's paradise if they think they can hold on to their ivory tower. The public is no longer prepared to subsidize our academic pursuits. We have to demonstrate our public worth." ~ Michael Burawoy, 2004

legacy academic scholarship

learning from journalism

pre-21st century, analog, closed, removed from the public sphere, monastic “legacy”

This was the only option for publishing.

We typed words & paragraphs on paper.

That technology had some problems.

This was “cut and paste.”

This is where we would go to find & read information.

This is how we looked things up.

Many journals or books not open & accessible.
