Jonathan Sterne’s Resources for Academes

For years, Jonathan Sterne has maintained a collection of links on academia and professionalization, simply titled Academe. He recently updated the links, including some new material on how to deal with campus rape culture, a challenging but relevant theme.

While publishing a collection of links might seem antiquated, I would prefer that this information remain on the web. As a webpage, it is more permanent than a stream of shared links from a Twitter or Facebook account, where immediacy and ephemerality prevail. A valuable reference such as this one should always be available. I also like that it embodies an enduring aspect of the World Wide Web: to openly share information.

Thank you for sharing, Professor Sterne.

Update: And it looks like another scholar, Jie Qin, has similarly been collecting links for those looking for research and teaching jobs in Communication and Media Studies.
