Hi, my name is Wienke. Never heard before? Wienke Strathern. Neither? Let’s listen how to pronounce it.
I am a PhD Candidate and Research Associate of Computational Social Science & Big Data at Technical University of Munich with Jürgen Pfeffer since 2019. My background is in Italian, French and German Studies and Media Law, I spent most of my study time at the University of Munich (LMU), at the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Rome and in Florence. I was born in Berlin. In my research I study human behaviour in social media with a focus on language. I use methods from quantitative linguistics and qualitative content analysis, experiments and social network analysis. Currently, I am looking at
– how people form moral outrages online,
– how people hate online,
– how these processes can be interrupted.
