~ Fun fact ~

There's a contest for all five of the Eurosenses!

* Eurovision is for original songs, of course
* Eurolfactory is for industrial design history trivia
* Europroprioception is for gymnastics
* Europrecognition is NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WHO TOLD YOU WE EXIST, and
* Euroecholocation is for masked crime-fighting

I heard that this year's Europrecognition will be hosted by Prognosticatrio and her 1,000 prestidigitatrices

@bgcarlisle The modern internet throws “LOL” around too liberally, but I actually laughed out loud.

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.
