Further down, you will also find our statutes available for download (in German)




Hello! I’m Laura and I am studying the Master’s pogramme of Applied Linguistics. I also work in organizational development and as a research assistant. I’m focusing on discourse analysis and sociolinguistics and my main interest lies in discursive practices especially in institutional contexts. A fun fact about me is that I know the secret to getting rid of the hiccups.

Emerging Linguists - Vorstehen - René


Holiii. Mein Name ist René. Ich habe Angewandte Linguistik im Master an der Universität Wien studiert. Sprachenpolitik, Sprachenrechten, Diskurslinguistik, Kolonialität, sowie Sprachlern- und -lehrforschung sind meine Kernthemen. Als Produkt aller Erfahrungen und Begegnungen, die ich in meinem Leben machte und mache, liebe ich guten Käse und perrear p’abajo.



Emerging Linguists - Schreiben - Dina


Hello! I'm Dina. I completed my studies in the Russian language at the University of Vienna, where I am now pursuing my Master's degree in General Linguistics. Since 2020, I've been hosting a podcast about the Slavic languages – Slavstvuyte! My main interest lies in the historical linguistics of the Slavic languages, especially in the fields of phonology and lexicon.


Hello! My name is David and I am about to graduate from my BA in English and American Studies. My focus lies heavily on the cognitive aspects of language, most notably psycholinguistics and phonaesthetics, so I am planning on pursuing a master’s in cognitive sciences.



Emerging Linguists - Kassieren - Nikola


Hi! My name is Nikola, and I studied International Business Administration at the University of Vienna. Currently, I work as a Junior Controller. In my free time, I enjoy engaging in numismatics. Since 2020, I have a large coin collection consisting of 2 Euro commemorative coins.




My name is Anna-Hannah, but everyone calls me Hanni because who really has a double name that's basically the same name with minimal deviation? I hold a BA in French Romance Studies and I'm about to complete my Master's degree in Law at the University of Vienna. Culture, art, law, and, above all, languages and books form the perfect blend in my daily life, which I alternate between Austria and France.
