New Video about #SaveMills - why this college should be saved
After the #Introductions post, we got some questions about "What is an HWC?" It's a Historically Women's College. What this means and more about the college is in our new short video: https://vimeo.com/546889519

Introduction from Save Mills
Hello! This account is news, announcements and more from the Coalition to Save Mills College, a 501c3 founded by a Mills College student to fight for the school to remain a degree-granting institution. We are students, staff, faculty, alums, and friends of the college.
Mills is a liberal arts college located in Oakland California. It is one of just 37 HWCs left in the United States.

Hi scholar.social, I'm a PhD student in Japan.
My current research interest is conservation #ecology, especially sustainable conservation and use of semi-natural grasslands in temperate Asia.
Other interests that I wish to focus on in my work include biodiversity informatics based on citizen science. As a citizen scientist myself, I enjoy using #iNaturalist to interact with naturalists around the world.
I hope to interact with common topics!
hello everyone, I'm stephanie (she/her)! #introduction
I'm a #machinelearning researcher at a big tech company, based in the UK. I did my phd in computational biology+medicine. I focus very much on ML for health, specifically critical care, physiological time series, "how to do ML well in health", etc.
Non-research activities include rollerskating/derby, gaming (computer/table-top/board), sewing, looking at birds.
Hi everyone, I am new in mastodon so I will go for an #introduction post to say something more about me...
I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at University of Warwick (England, UK). I am interested in topics in philosophy of mind, actions and (even more) perception ❤️ My PhD thesis aims to analyse the auditory case of perceiving music...
I am also a musicians, I completed a (old system) degree and an MA in music performance in French Horn and I love to discuss anything related to art music

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.
