I went from Jaiku to Twitter to here.

I am a mom, babywearer and member of . I like doing yoga and mindfulness, and also less often than I should.

I work as an university lecturer/researcher and am currently working on my PhD about in Journalism studies.

Hi there!

@miren Welcome! And that sounds so interesting - I studied journalism in undergrad, taught it for 11 years and have a masters in journalism education, and that's such an important skill to teach (and one I still feel like I need to work on.)

@miren welcome! I also did babywearing with my 2 kids (still sometimes put my two year old in our Ergo).

I'm also trying to get back into a regular yoga practice -- I do mostly videos at home when I can.

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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"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.
