the next time i hear the word ontological i might cry

ok what are the definitions / differences between humanism, modernism, posthumanism, and postmodernism? once i asked for a definition of postmodernism and all i got in return was <nervous laughter> which is, while probably accurate, not helpful

lb:

full fathom five thy father lies;
of his bones are coral made;
those are pearls that were his eyes:
nothing of him that doth fade
but doth suffer a sea-change
into something rich and strange.
sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell

(burthen ding-dong)

hark! now i hear them,--- ding-dong, bell.

reading, musing 

Led a discussion of a paper at lab meeting today and think it went ok. Feeling a little worn out now and reading a delightful article shared by @lichen "Queer Theory for Lichens" epubs.surrey.ac.uk/852433/1/Qu

Adjacent to my professional interests and utterly delightful.

Hello friends! I'm an early career linguist and educator teaching academic literacy and researching bilingual phonetics and syntax. I'm currently teaching multimodal communication in the University of Hong Kong, and am looking to apply for doctorate programmes in (applied) linguistics.

I'm going to share my thoughts here, deep or silly, about languages, my teaching, and the world from my perspective💕 And probably my photography and other things I enjoy in life.

See y'all around!
