Callin_bull -- Mailing list for the Calling Bullshit course


About Callin_bull
English (USA)

The world is awash in bullshit.

Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. So-called higher education often rewards bullshit over analytic thought. Startup culture has elevated bullshit to high art. Advertisers wink conspiratorially and invite us to join them in seeing through all the bullshit, then take advantage of our lowered guard to bombard us with second-order bullshit. The majority of administrative activity, whether in private business or the public sphere, often seems to be little more than a sophisticated exercise in the combinatorial reassembly of bullshit.

This mailing list is associated with the prospective University of Washington course Calling Bullshit in the Age of Big Data.

We will be adding new content to the site on a regular basis and posting announcements here.
