Welcome to Hidden Scholars, a home for independent scholars in western New England, including western Massachusetts, the Five College region, the Connecticut Valley, Hartford and Brattleboro.

We are a new group for academics at the Ph.D. level or equivalent without institutional affiliations – independents, adjunct faculty members, and many others. An increasing number of credentialed, highly skilled scholars do not have full-time or tenure-track teaching appointments. Many work from home, teach at odd hours, or have no permanent office space.

Modeled on the successful organization Hidden Tech, Hidden Scholars provides a place for contact and mutual support for independent scholars. Our first goal is to provide social connections. As interest arises, members will be able to pursue professional networking, study partnerships, activism, and more.

We will hold a meetup soon. Follow this blog or sign up for the mailing list.
