Hello and welcome to my homepage,
My name is Jana Neitsch and I earned my PhD in general linguistics at the University of Konstanz in 2019 with special focus on phonetics, phonology, and psycholinguistics. In my thesis, I investigated the prosodic characteristics of rhetorical questions compared to string-identical information-seeking questions in German in both production and perception.
Meanwhile, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southern Denmark and I investigate hate speech on social media platforms. I am particularly interested in the perception of written vs. spoken hate speech and the prosodic characteristics of spoken hate speech. To this end, I analyse participants' biosignals in terms of physiological reactions (e.g., heart rate, breathing, skin conductance response, EEG).
