The “I left the physical or life sciences to pursue humanistic studies of the sciences” badge.


In which the recipient is now probably having a lot more fun than he/she did before. (JS)


  1. We really need a “I left the humanities (or something like them) to pursue the sciences (or something like them)” badge, or at least a “non-scientist who plays with scientists” badge.

    thank you :)
    For those who’ve earned this badge (including me), most research conversations usually begin with “Well, I began my work in [insert scientific field here…”

  3. Carrie

    Can we get a “Social Sciences are real science, too” badge?

  4. Jess

    Or how about a “Philosophy of Science isn’t just jerking off” badge?

  5. KV

    Maybe a “History of Science makes sure someone will remember your obscure contribution” badge?

  6. Some of us just went directly to the humanistic studies of science out of school, never bothered with the “respectable” stuff in the first place…

  7. Stones and Bones

    We need a “I left the respectable sciences and conquered humanistic studies of the sciences, then went back to a respectable science because THAT’s WHERE THE MONEY’S AT, but left my <3 in the History of Technology and Science" badge.
