~ Playing a first-person shooter ~
So uhh which button lets me work out our differences diplomatically?
@bgcarlisle I think it's the one labeled 'Threaten Nukes'
Toxic masc sad Show more
Okay so my nephew found a button that makes his character do a dance
Which is honestly the best part of the game because the rest is all pew-pew-kablam
But I think he doesn't like it now because it's not manly enough and that's kinda sad
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.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(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 @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.
