Pinned toot

Hello everyone,
I'm a designer and researcher from France, living and working in London for over 10 years. I'm currently writing up my PhD by practice which is about algorithms, prediction, and diagrams. I'm interested in the digital humanities, media archaeology, and critical/speculative creative practice.

I'm keen to try (and potentially build?) alternatives to predatory services like academia.edu and researchgate so this is me jumping in!

the papers have now re-appeared, just as mysteriously as they had been taken down. No clue as to which TOS were breached 🤷‍♂️.

(This wasn't my doing btw, whole proceedings were put on Figshare by conference organisers under CC license. We did give consent though)

I guess this why you should not host your conference papers on Figshare.
(I wonder what happens now that all the DOIs point to them)

NOTICE: Registration on scholar.social is open to anyone who is willing to abide by our Community Standards. Email scholar dot social at protonmail dot com if you want an invite!

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 in academia, 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"

"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.
