Franziska Thurnherr, M.A.

SNF-Projektmitarbeiterin (Research Fellow)

Franziska Thurnherr started working on her PhD in September 2011 at the English Seminar in Basel. She received her MA in English linguistics and psychology from the University of Berne. Her MA thesis “Relational Work in Intercultural Conversations between Friends” focused on the transfer of relational work strategies from first to second languages in casual conversations between friends. In her PhD project, Franziska combines her interests in interpersonal pragmatics, computer-mediated communication and mental health discourse: her project centers around the relational aspect of language used in online counseling.
