I'm the lone undercover grad student from the humanities in an undergrad astronomy class for science majors. How do i pretend to be them? How do i avoid outing myself? How do i ask them for help in a class that's definitely too hard for my atrophied brain? How do i secure a homework partner when they already all know each other?
I'm in such a good workshop today and tomorrow! It's about starting out as a PhD. How to plan, what to avoid, how to draw joy out of that task.
i wish there was a class in school that taught me how to be organised rather than just expecting people to be able to cope with the academic lifestyle

Scholar Social is meant 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.

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.
