When I went to select my academic interests, I noticed the wide variety of terms that are used for the same/similar concepts. Seems like something that will need to be controlled before things get too scattered. A good example is “film”
I tried attaching an illustration, but I can’t figure out how to insert an image. Trying to insert a screenshot that I saved on my hard drive.
OK! thanks for contributing on the HC group. We actually cleaned up a lot of the academic interests when we first moved to the HC platform (MLA Commons had existed for 3 years at that point so we had a lot of interests listed there). We wanted to leave it somewhat open to how people want to phrase them – but that is a good point and we’ll keep thinking about it.
When you say you tried to attach an illustration do you mean as a cover image or avatar on your profile? Or somewhere else on the profile? But I see when you attached a screenshot here it didn’t work either…will look into that.
