Writing in 1651 Thomas Hobbes famously described life in the state of nature as “nasty, brutish, and short.” While much of Hobbes’ work—and the larger field of political thought—has centered on reading the human side of that description, the phrase might also be taken to indicate elements of the lived natural world. Indeed, it is difficult to separate considerations of human life, law, and politics from the ecosystem that helps constitute them.

The assumption that science largely ceased to be an area of human endeavor between the Hellenistic period and the age of Galileo has given way to an increasing awareness of the continuity of scientific thinking throughout the medieval period, especially as regards cosmology and astronomy. The notion of a more scientifically aware Middle Ages may seem at odds with the boundaries of medieval thought presented in the paradigms of western medievalism created by authors C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. But the popular image of the Middle Ages they created may be less incompatible with recent work on medieval science than might initially be supposed.

Insensitivity to the demands of childcare is nowhere explicitly codified in any academic department or organization, but the formal structures and informal customs of the modern academic organization produce a bias that disproportionately affects the most vulnerable members of the academic hierarchies. Scholarship and childcare compete for time and attention. Extracurricular expectations — conference travel, participation in departmental committees, archival research, interviews & campus visits, &c. — take on new dimensions of difficulty. Graduate stipends and adjunct pay are prohibitively inadequate for the costs of having and raising children, even when supplemented with secondary incomes.
