#introductions Hi all, my name is Rohan kapitany, and I'm an experimental psychologist in the UK. I study ritual, religion, and the supernatural/fantastical (in adult, children, and cross-cultural contexts). Presently at Keele University, previously a postdoc at Oxford.
I will also tweet about eurorack and D&D, because I'm more than just my job and my research (or I try to be!).
Buried as a reply:
Here is my scholar profile if you think any of that sounds interesting: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=TkSZGtEAAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao
(Can provide OSF account too, if anyone cares).
Also, here's some eurorack. It's fully generative noise-ambient. Maybe not for everyone, but I'm here to find like-minded folks and chew gum, and my breathe is already minty.
It definitely is! I wrote a paper on adult pretend play with D&D as the focus, elaborating the cognitive model of play by Nichols and Stich. Also, trying to get a PhD student off the ground focusing how extensions of identity influence our own 'real' identities.
But also, I just like playing the game (and kinda like being a forever DM).
@rohan @socrates that is actually super cool. A friend of mine started a local business with some therapists running D&D games for kids on the spectrum and various socially affecting anxieties and what not. They absolutely love it (that is, both the kids, the people running the business, and the parents)
