Hello everybody, I'm Maël Montévil.
Ciao a tutti! #introduction
I'm Mike (he/him), and I'm a US-based language acquisition #researcher and #teacher. Primary area of interest is using #games for second language learning, grounded in critical, liberatory #pedagogy. I teach #french and #latín #language #linguistics #criticaltheory #sla
📯 📯 Greetings! 📯 📯
I'm nune, an autodidact teaching myself higher geometry from the ground up. A college dropout, turned web developer, turned game developer, I once dreamed of being a geology professor.
Unfortunately (for a whole lotta 👎 reasons), I didn't make it. So, I figured math is a great way to do science at home (kinda).
That's all I got for now. Thank you for having me! Oh, and you can check out my main at @nune

Hello, I teach Greek and Latin in Zagreb, Croatia. I research Neo-Latin literature (Renaissance Humanism mostly), connected with digital humanities. A lot of books in Latin are available on the internet with few people to read them. Ars longa, vita brevis.
Hi scholar.social, Hi fediverse!
Mark here from Delft, Netherlands. I just started a PhD to research socio-technical enablers/inhibitors of software testing. In the next 4 years I will look into how and why developers do (not) test software. I am particularly interested in the social dimensions of this which is why I'm also curious to learn more about ethnographic research methods.
Looking forward to be a part of the scholar.social community to connect and share insights!
Hello everyone. I'm a music student based in Brazil (sadly). Currently I'm researching about post-colonialism in contemporary music. I'm also interested in agroecology.
I'm Donna, just got my MA in English Studies, a creative writer. I also teach English, Japanese and Korean in my spare time.
I have a broad interest in literature and language learning. Travel writing and post-colonialism was my main research scopes when I was a student. I believe that learning a language can help me break free from the constructed narrowed view and appreciate what a culture really looks like.
Looking forward to connecting with you all.

Hi, I'm pursuing a Phd (CS, Software Engineering) at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) & Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I'm also a #ResearchSoftwareEngineer (RSE) in linguistics.
I'm based in Berlin, Germany.
I'm a library school student interested in public libraries and social justice. I love video games, hip-hop, baseball, plants, and queer stuff (and books, to be cliche).
I'm a senior post-doc based in 🇸🇪
I code in R and have been meaning to learn #phython for too long 😅
I've started teaching recently and I am loving it
In my free time I cook fancy meals, play too many videogames and think about science fiction.
This is my professional alt, but fellow queers are welcome to ask for my personal one.
Non-academic interests include server administration & service hosting, video games.
This is not my first account in the Fediverse, but this time I want to make full use of the "local timeline" feature. (:
I am Rankie(she/they),a PhD student majoring psychology, still in the way figuring out my “ultimate” interest yet. My current interest is eye movement during reading.
I am new here, and love to connect with people from different disciplines
Reminder to new friends on Scholar
Read our Community Standards: https://scholar.social/about/more
(It's actually pretty short—the page just looks long because there's the list of blocked servers at the bottom)
The rules are different here from Twitter's and they're also different from other Mastodon instances
We have our own culture, norms and standards
And if you are a white supremacist, a TERF or you're here to spread anti-queer hate of any kind, close your account and save me the trouble
Hello. I study a PhD in Modern Literature, researching on literature theory, philosophy and poetry. I am working on a theoretical approach to some literary texts I call "ontological metapoetics" that put in dialogue multidisciplinary perspectives.
I am also an author of some books of poetry and narrative published in Spanish.
Some other interests I have are for aesthetics, philosophy of videogames, rabbinical literature, and pop culture.
Hope to share interests & be friends!
Hi there! I'm an undergraduate English major. Soon I will be a graduate student and major in #comparativeliterature. Broadly speaking my area of interests is #modernliterature, feminism and post-colonialism. Still exploring! Umm, currently I‘m writing my thesis about Sarah Kane. I'm pansexual. She/they both work for me ；）#introduction
