» An apology from the academy ¦ What You Can Get Away With

I wrote last week about doing a new series of posts that tried to explain political science concepts in an accessible and understandable way. Thanks to all those here and on Twitter who said you’d be interested in that, and I had hoped to have a first post up by now. However, things have taken longer than I expected and trying to break down concepts into simple and understandable chunks isn’t as easy as I thought it might be, and the first post is currently meandering all over the place. One thing it is doing is giving me a lot of respect for lecturers and other academics, as trying to break things down into discrete chunks of information isn’t as easy as it might seem when there’s a huge mass of interlocked concepts to disentangle it from.

Which is my way of saying that it’ll likely be a week or two before anything appears, as I need to properly plan this (instead of my usual blogging method of winging it) and am off on holiday soon, but hopefully the time away will help me to sort the different ideas and concepts out in my head. I am still planning on doing it, but perhaps not as quickly as I first hoped.
