conference talk, bringing LIS into an interdisciplinary setting Show more
Better news: my proposal to the grad student conference was accepted. Haven't done that kind of presentation in years. Plus, now I won't feel quite so awkward asking a prof for more feedback on the paper.
It'll be fun trying to do "Is a Plant a Document?: The Knowledge Practices of Renaissance Natural History, Francis Bacon, and Contemporary Library Science" in 15-20 minutes when the original paper was more than 20 pages.
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"

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
