Another day of schools closed for the kids. That's 5 of the last 6 days now...

From the last page of a book I recently finished:

"…the funny thing is I've got tenure now after all these years. It doesn't matter what happens to my job; I've got tenure in the only place it counts. In here." He tapped his chest.

We are supposed to hit wind chills of -60°F next week. Wonder if that's enough to cancel classes? 🤔

You know what's not conducive to a stress-free start to the semester?

Bronchitis that causes you to completely lose your voice for three days (and counting)!

2018 ended in true 2018 fashion with a late New Year's Eve paper rejection.

2019 just isn't that pretty of a number.

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.
