Classes start in two days and I am waaaaayyyy behind in being ready to teach. Yikes. Still making last minute decisions on what kinds of assignments to have and what readings to assign. And I haven't yet finished my website nor the videos I am making to introduce Socrates and Plato next week.

Going to be a long next couple of days...

@logarithmic_function Thank you! I did manage to get most everything ready in time for class today. More work the rest of the week to finish it all, but most of the prep work is done!

@chendricks Good luck! I feel like spring semester was always harder to start than fall.

@Holly Yes, me too. The problem is that it starts for us really early (started today). So it feels like we just finished last term (which we did, Dec. 22) and then it's time to start up again!

But I got most of it done for today's class so I feel okay about it so far!

A Mastodon instance for academics

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.

"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 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.
