Hi everyone, my name is Frank. I am a political scientist and sociologist at Kiel University, Germany, working on International Political Sociology, critical security studies, German foreign policy and the authoritarian threat of the Republican Party in the US. Looking forward to interesting conversations, in case someone here is interested in politics.

For our next session of our reading group, we will read the first chapter of bell hooks’ book “Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black”.

Sadly this sounds very familiar to the German audience: David Bates on nationalist and anti-immigration rhetoric in the Labour Party’s post-brexit #discourse. Can we get past this, please? #nationalism #brexit #SocialistNationalism #Immigration #populism

Try Mastodon they said... So, here I am, #historian working on the #earlymodern period and historical #peaceresearch, especially in the Baltic Sea region and the Holy Roman Empire, with a particular soft spot for Imperial Diets and constitutional history. #introduction

Wir haben für CeMAS eine bevölkerungsrepräsentative Umfrage durchgeführt, um besser zu verstehen, wie stark sich Verschwörungserzählungen rund um den russischen Angriffskrieg auf die Ukraine in der Gesellschaft verbreitet haben. Das Research Paper mit den Ergebnissen haben wir heute veröffentlicht.

I maintain FediScience together with @FrankSonntag. Do reach out to us with any questions or when people make you feel less welcome.

Once we have enough people here, we would like to transfer the ownership of this server to an association. The main limit would probably be finding enough people interested in engaging in such an association.

This association could receive donations, determine the rules, hold elections and appoint moderators.
