Hi, my name is Wienke. Never heard before? Wienke Strathern. Neither? Let’s listen how to pronounce it.

I hold a PhD in Computational Social Science. I did a Master of Arts in Language and Literature (Italian, German, French) and Law at the University of Munich (LMU), at the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Rome and in Florence. I was born in Berlin.

My research is guided by theories and the exploratory analysis of very large collections of social media data in order to gain insights into the structures, regularities, properties, and functions of language and human behavior. One of my goals is to advance the interdisciplinary challenges of Language, Social Sciences and Computer Science.

Currently, I am looking at

  • how people form moral outrages online,
  • how people hate online,
  • how these processes can be interrupted.
