Academic blogroll

by Henry Farrell on June 8, 2005

I’ve updated the “academic blogroll”:, for the first time in a couple of months – there are many additions. My apologies to all those who have been waiting to be added – a combination of other responsibilities, and the fact that changing the blogroll is a little more painful in our new WordPress incarnation than in MT have led to me keeping on putting off the evil day of updating it. That, and the fact that it’s increasingly becoming impossible for one person to keep up with every new academic blog out there. If I’ve inadvertently left someone out, or if there’s someone else I ought to add, please let me know in comments or by email.

Ethan Wilding (Philosophy postgrad at the University of Waterloo) has an interesting new Podcast web blog called “Ad Absurdum” at The site is new and contains audio feeds from various lectures/conferences (like the recent CPA conference). So far the contributions include talks on philosophy of language, logic and political philosophy.

Your link to Jeff Erickson’s computational geometry blog seems to be broken. It is up and running at:

Some months ago I started an academic blog, Zirma, about travel, mobilities and social sciences. Information about me and my blog:

Along with some other people, I’ve started a group blog about mathematics and its applications, pitched at the grad school/research level, at:

Your link to Suburban Guerilla needs updating. It’s moved to:
The move has cost her a lot of hits while links get updated – It’s a great site so the update it worthwhile!

Well, I can now think of at least one reason I might want to do a PhD – to get onto the Crooked Timber blogroll!

Otherwise, an abortive attempt at a PhD that took three years put me off the whole idea. And working in IT support in a university has given me firsthand experience of how academic life has become more stressful and less pleasant with increasing student loads and an anti-intellectual government.

But maybe I should see if I can get onto the blogroll as a “category three” exception.

Can I quibble that my blog is actually called “Bloodless Coop” (sic) and not Farmer versus Fox (which is merely part of the url)? Great to see it up, though.

Thanks, Henry.

Thanks, although there should be a line break between Economist’s view and me – the two links are “Smooshed” together (that’s a technical term)

We’re building a list of French academic blogs over there:

It’s not exactly as long as yours, though (plus, it includes students).

Great list! Thanks for including me.

Here’s a link to the Neuroethics & Law Blog, an academic blog dedicated to legal and ethical issues related to the brain and cognition:

Thanks, Henry – and absolutely *no* reason to apologise for any delay!

I’m a sociologist with primary interests in politics, culture and religion. And I’m, like John Quiggin, in Brisvegas.

Worked as a Lecturer in Public Policy and Industrial Relations, then in Sociology for 8 years. Now taking time out to finish my PhD.

Sample post here on a topic that I think has also been discussed at Crooked Timber.

Thanks for including me – good to be here!
