Howdy! I am Ramey Moore, and I am an anthropologist working on medical and environmental topics.

I like weird movies, art, music, but esp. spooky things and heavy metal.

I like knowing which ideas you use to think with.

Structures which emphasize the human, invite us to be good to one another and other living things, and systems that liberate us from violence are all things I like.

@xldrkp Thanks! I'm excited to dig in to a new platform (and avoid all of the old, bad ones).

@RameyMoore Good you came here, this is a nice instance to be on.

Have you checked out communitywiki.org/trunk? It might help you find people to follow that are interested in similar things as you are.

Using @tom79 on Android makes it easy to join people on those lists.

Scholar Social

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.
