Abstract: The purpose of this research is to understand the ways in which new students identify themselves in online social spaces. More specifically, we performed a linguistic analysis of graduate students’ introductory notes in an asynchronous discussion forum. Students described themselves in terms of their epistemic beliefs, qualifications, professional experiences, motivations, career plans and cultural background. In building their identity in the community, students brought out their individuality, justified their presence and established social capital.
