[community profile] article_share is a community for people who are looking for a particular journal article and can't find it anywhere else. Entries are member-locked but joining is open to everyone.

It was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] article_request and because I couldn't find a Dreamwidth equivalent, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

A community designed for discussing mathematics or helping people with homework or anything related to math!

With the start of a new college semester quickly approaching, I figure we could all use any help we can get. So don't be shy! :)

It seemed like a shame that DW had no Shakespeare community; thus, [community profile] thegreatglobe is available for your delectation. I've just posted open reaction posts for the two aired episodes of The Hollow Crown, but please please please feel free to talk about any Shakespeare or Shakespeare-derivative thing you so please!
glinda: sound design geek (bbc fangirl)
[personal profile] glinda
[community profile] sound_design is a comm for sound designers, sound engineers, sound editors and sound artists whether professional, amateur or students to talk about sound. Whether that takes the form of film, television, animations, theatre or art installation. See a film with utterly awesome (or utterly appalling) sound? Learn a trick you just want to enthuse endlessly about or have a problem you could do with some suggestions to fix? This is the place for it.

Comms I mod of various interests:
[community profile] crossroles: For those who are a fan of a specific type of crossover, where two or more fandoms that share an actor are tossed together and any startling similarities are explained with excuses of long-lost (or not so lost) identical twins, secret pasts, alternate universes, clones, or whatever else.
[community profile] fandomacademia: A community for those nerdiest of nerds, the ones who enjoy writing scholarly articles and critical papers. At least, about interesting but not necessarily academically acceptable sources. This is specifically a community for those articles, papers, essays, or even just academic discussions on not so academic subjects.
[community profile] maydecember: A place for those who enjoy respectful depictions of relationships with significant age-gaps.
[community profile] promptmemes: Meant to be a resource with links to prompt memes all around DW as well as a place to create and contribute to the memes themselves, in any fandom or category.
[community profile] thewonders: For fans of the Wonder Women, Wonder Girls, and everything and everyone connected to their stories.

[personal profile] lettered
[community profile] daily_words is a writing comm that also builds your vocabulary. Taken from the user info:

A vocabulary word gets posted once a day, with the meaning.

If the word strikes you, or you really want to remember it, or the mood just is all upon you, you post a short piece using the word of the day. The piece can be original or in any fandom. For any kind of prose, please attempt at least 50 words. Any kind of poetry is also welcome. Pieces over 100 words, please cut. You're also free (of course!) to post the fic in your own journal. Just post a link with your story!

If you don't feel like writing something for that day's word, no problem. Wait until the fancy strikes.

Two comms to pimp! But they're related.

The first is a repost for [community profile] mandarin101, a language learning comm for Mandarin Chinese learners of all levels to post and have discussions!

The second is the brand new [community profile] en_espanol, a community for posting in Spanish, about anything you want. The idea is to practice your language skills, and all levels of Spanish are welcome. The focus is on writing, not correcting!

[community profile] monstrous_regiment is a new community for women to discuss military subjects.

What this community is about

Military history and military fandoms are sometimes seen as "boys' interests". If a woman expresses interest -- whether academic, fannish, or just as a hobby -- it's often seen as an oddity.

This community exists as a space for women to talk about the military and related topics: history, historiography, culture, representations in media, book/tv/film reviews, research, fannish creations and meta, etc.

Anything related to the military or to military conflict is welcome. To be explicit, "military" includes any military force (incl. navy, air force, etc), whether real or fictional, past, present, or future.

On being a women-centric community

This community exists to provide a space for women to talk about military subjects. We take a broad definition of "woman", and if you identify as one, then we include you. We don't require any assertion or test to qualify for membership -- in fact anyone may join -- but we ask that those who don't identify as women respect the space we've set up here, and don't try to usurp the conversation (whether in posts or comments).

Where the name comes from

The term "Monstrous Regiment" originally comes from a 16th century political tract called The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women, complaining about female heads of state at the time (especially Mary I of England and Mary Queen of Scots). Monstrous Regiment is also the title of a humorous fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett, part of the Discworld series, about a girl who runs away to join the army, and which contains considerable commentary on women and the military.

If you're interested in military stuff, please join/subscribe to [community profile] monstrous_regiment!

(Mods, this probably needs additional tags, though I'm not sure what... military? women?)
jana: LaTeX, the typesetting language (LaTeX)
[personal profile] jana
I thought we could use a community where we can discuss everything related to LaTeX :) [community profile] la_tex is open for everyone (I know, not the most imaginative name, plus latex and tex are already taken...)

[personal profile] damned_colonial
Announcing a new community, [community profile] queering_holmes, for discussions about Sherlock Holmes and queerness. This is not a slash community, though it is fan friendly; rather, it is a community for thoughtful meta, research, and academic/scholarly discussions about queerness in Sherlock Holmes canon and in the Holmesian period. A (non-exhaustive) list of on-topic subjects:

* history of homosexuality in the Holmesian era
* queer interpretations of the text
* reviews of related books/articles/etc
* close readings/recs/reviews of pastiches/fanworks in light of queer history/theory/etc
* investigations of gender/masculinity/etc in Sherlock Holmes
* forms of queerness other than homosexuality
* discussions of eg. orientalism, colonialism, class or other related subjects/approaches

Of course the Sherlock Holmes books, movies, TV series, and various other adaptations and related works are all on-topic.

(Mods, should there be an LGBTQ tag?)

If you have a passion for trowels, old stuff, and playing in the dirt, than check out [community profile] archaeology_weekly!

A place for posting links about cool archaeology things or just chatting about the merits of ancient civilizations. It's just starting up, but there will soon be a weekly update of archaeological proportions for interesting news/discoveries in archaeology amongst other general posts.

I've just started [community profile] language_learning, a community specifically geared to those learning languages. It doesn't matter why you're learning, what you're learning, or at what level. We'd love to have you! This will be a place to post resources, look for conversation partners, share language learning experiences, ask questions, etc. Mod posts will be in English, but posts can be in any language. We're starting with an introduction post, so come by and let us know who you are and what you're learning! Native/advanced speakers (especially of languages other than English) are also more than welcome to join and give learners of your language a hand.
