Hello! Scholar.Social is excited to host the second , a free, indisciplinary online academic conference - roughly spanning 7/26-8/4 🌞

We'll be looking for: people to help organize, moderators for the presentations, and presenters! Stay tuned for more details 👀

You can check out past presentations here:

@SummerSchool I shall help with Asia Pacific time stuff and compatible. Would also love to do some pondering aloud about methods or teaching and research.

@marcjones :ferris_party: we're still ironing out details but we'll keep that in mind, thank you!! Also excited to see you present again :)

@SummerSchool let me know if you need help and I will try to do it.

@marcjones thank you! we will for sure reach out if there is anything

@KatLH Thank you so much! We would love some support to be able to get folks who will be having Winter School (it's riley, I'm not good at word play)

@SummerSchool yep yep, and summer people in Asian timezones too

Would appreciate to see open source software utilised, e.g. MIT Unhangout,

@citc @SummerSchool Not on the account right now, but we and most people are more familiar with jitsi and zoom. I, personally, don't have the energy to put in to become familiar enough with another program to use in a way to keep the space safe. Additionally, we have gotten up to nearly 30 people and this platform it looks like can only have 10.

@Cyborgneticz @SummerSchool
Not sure where the limit of ten derives, but since the decision has been made, ignore the suggestion! :)

@SummerSchool I presented last year and had a really good time. It would be great to be involved this year as well, if you are still in need of volunteers.

@SummerSchool Or in need of speakers; frankly I would do either happily. But I assume you are overflowing with speakers this year ;) and would be glad to help in other ways.

@feonixrift We would love for you to present! We always need moderators too, which is a very relaxed job.

@SummerSchool :grins: I will happily join you, in both regards. (Time to write an abstract, I suppose...)

@SummerSchool I'd love to participate as presenter, if you'll have me.

@SummerSchool am happy to help!!

might be working then but I'm sure we can fit things around?
