When I tell someone I’m in history and they respond “but how are you going to get a job in that field?”

A reasonable inquiry, though. Nevertheless, it’s an admirable field of study! I’ve gone the informal path, particularly in regards to antiquity.

It’s only reasonable if you accept the neoliberalization of our universities that is taking place, if you accept that only fields that produce “value” in the sense of profits are worth studying, and if you accept that we can reduce the quantity and quality of course offerings in this field for students and still provide quality education.  
I accept none of those.  I think having people whose job is to study history, to imagine new ways to make history more inclusive, and to try and understand our present as a product of the past to be a worthwhile endeavor that deserves social investment.
Now don’t get me wrong, I understand that you didn’t intend your comment in this way, but the logic behind it is socially pervasive, and it underwrites the structural transformations taking place in how we organize work, how capital continues to find new ways to extract profit, and how disciplines like history, sociology, the humanities, and more are being systematically gutted in the name of market competition.  Thus, these comments bother me regardless of intention.

when i was at my secondary school this is what we did to celebrate the school’s 420th birthday

Pretty sure America wasn’t even settled 420 years ago since that would be the 1500s.

oh sorry i totally forgot what country i lived in for a second i wasn’t aware i’d said in that post about being in the USA
