Adam Kotsko reflects on work, productivity and overwork in a post entitled ‘Workohol‘ at An und für sich.
This resonated with me given the multiple projects I have running in parallel at the moment. Almost all of these are books – authored or edited. There is an article in development, but I see that very much as an outline of a book project. I’ve been debating writing a post on why I prioritise books over articles, even in the era of research assessment we live and work in. I’ve been holding back on writing that because it risks being read as something written from a position of privilege, but there are perhaps some more general issues which might be of wider interest.
