Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

Carla Suhr is a University Lecturer who teaches courses in English linguistics as well as skills courses such as text analysis and academic writing. She is also an academic advisor for BA and MA level students, and a supervisor of three PhD theses. Her research focuses on (historical) (corpus) pragmatics, genre studies and (news) discourse analysis, and these are also topics she teaches in her linguistics courses. She has a strong interest in combining book history with her research into historical English texts. Her PhD (2011) dealt with the development of the genre of witchcraft pamphlets, and currently she works with early modern news pamphlets more generally and medical texts from the period 1500 to 1800. Since 2000, she has been a member of the Scientific Thought-Styles project – a part of the VARIENG research group – which is compiling a large corpus of historical medical writing.
