Pretty excited about this: from now through November 8th, I will be running the @WeTheHumanities Twitter account! If you're not familiar with it, it's a Twitter account with a focus on the humanities, and switches authors every week.
Two of my most popular posts in the past two years have been:
How Plagiarized Art Sells for Millions - Symbiartic
Who Holds the Gaze? A Storify - The Flying Trilobite
Both of these posts had a heavy focus on fine art traditions, while also discussing technology in the former and science illustration in the latter. So I'm hoping to bring that sort of discussion to @WeTheHumanities this week. In addition, I'm excited to share the vast, emerging art genre of SciArt with the We the Humanities regular audience.
Whether you're one of my regular readers or someone new, I hope you'll join me there! And don't be shy. Ask me questions!
Do you like what you read here? Are you an aspiring Citizen Scientist?Some of you may have already taken our readers' survey and if so, thank you! If you haven't yet, we’ve extended the survey period to get a more complete cross-section of our readers. Now through November 20 we are posting a survey created by Dr. Paige Brown Jarreau -- author of the blog From the Lab Bench -- to gather information about who reads our blog and why. By participating, you’ll be helping us improve Symbiartic and contribute to Dr. Jarreau's research on blog readership. As a thank you for your time, you'll get your choice of a FREE science art download from Paige's collection of nature photography, as well as a chance to win a t-shirt or a $50.00 Amazon gift card (100 available, or guaranteed 2 per specific blog included in this survey). It should only take 10-15 minutes to complete. You can find the survey here: http://bit.ly/mysciblogreaders. Thanks in advance for participating!
