how can I be awake so long but accomplish so little.

just throw me in the ol' meat grinder, if you please

I am doing some "citational" work on my upcoming research projects and writing. Trying to get rid of the reliance on theorists like Derrida (noted scumbag) and trying to include BIPOC theorists. Anyone got some leads on the must-read and must-cite?

did a career-thing that I was scared of. yay me.

AKA why isn't there more queered black metal, and why is everyone sleeping on how dancy black metal can be?

Why aren't there more bands like The Soft Pink Truth?

So I'm currently reading "The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges' Library of Babel" and oh my God this fuckin guy

I am on the lookout for great contemporary ethnographies, social histories, anything related to contemporary environmental health and conservation, and anything cutting edge social theory. If any of y'all got recommendations, please let me know!

I need a better office chair. I just tried to turn my head and thought my head was going to fall off. I'll add that to my list of bizarre ways that I could die in my office. In the event of my death I will my pile of empty coffee cups, water bottles, and purloined office supplies to my office mate, or to whichever faculty member can first call "dibs" on my good stuff (it is, none of it, good).

Howdy! I am Ramey Moore, and I am an anthropologist working on medical and environmental topics.

I like weird movies, art, music, but esp. spooky things and heavy metal.

I like knowing which ideas you use to think with.

Structures which emphasize the human, invite us to be good to one another and other living things, and systems that liberate us from violence are all things I like.

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
