Or: What is wrong with the over-educated moonbeams running the schools.
“In this article we contribute to this literature by considering citation as a problematic technology that contributes to the reproduction of the white heteromasculinity of geographical thought and scholarship, despite advances toward more inclusivity in the discipline in recent decades. Yet we also suggest, against citation counting and other related neoliberal technologies that imprecisely approximate measures of impact, influence, and academic excellence, citation thought conscientiously can also be a feminist and anti-racist technology of resistance that demonstrates engagement with those authors and voices we want to carry forward.”

Comments: Geography is not a science, but long-term measurement. “Social sciences” aren’t. “Political science” is a contradiction. A graduate school professor referred to his class as “historians,” even though none of us had published a book or articles. Reality was, we were people studying history, nothing more.
