Research Lectures By Nechama*
A Preview of My In-Progress Book Project, Research for the Revolution
*This is absolutely what I do in my spare time...

I throw down with how research methods are so often taught - for one thing, we make it really boring. And, worse, we make it seem neutral, and fixed, and the province of old, self-important white men. It's actually none of those things, which is why I've been slowly writing a better textbook. And in the meantime, I thought your life might be missing nerdy, foul-mouthed lectures about research methods. You're welcome.
