Hey there. This is my #introduction
I‘m a theologian at Ruhr-Uni Bochum, living in Heidelberg. My field of expertise is Systematic Theology - especially Protestant Theology from 20th/21st century. I‘m also interested in all sorts of open source culture.
Bringing these two together I am on to some explorations with an open journal called „Cursor“ together with @thomasrenkert and several other inspiring scholars.
Looking forward to learning about emerging possibilities of science communication.
@Benfried Hi welcome!
If you're new here, be sure to read our Community Standards: https://scholar.social/about/more
The rules are different here from other instances, and it's not everyone's cup of tea
But if you read that and think "yes I'm in the right place!" then pull up a chair and make yourself at home :)
Thanks for the warm welcome. As this is the first instance of Mastodon I’m using at all, I‘m sure I will get used to it - so far from what I read it sounds like I could really enjoy the commutation culture here. Thanks again

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
