“We looked at 8 to 10 activities that happy people engage in, and for each one, the people who did the activities more — visiting others, going to church, all those things — were more happy,” Dr. Robinson said. “TV was the one activity that showed a negative relationship. Unhappy people did it more, and happy people did it less.”

  1. Thoroughly enjoyed the post. Thank you for infmoring us of the experience of these ethnographers the choices they made and the varied consequences they faced that could have been easily forgotten. As in the previous post (), the life stories of McConnel and Tennant Kelly put us in perspective on the gender politics in academia, urging us never to be complacent. I find What would you have done? rather difficult to answer, but it’s an important question as it necessarily invites us to expand our imagination (even including inaction’ as Christof mentions above) and to think in terms of the intersection between research and activism in our own current research practice.
