Christiane von Stutterheim

Christiane von Stutterheim holds a full professorship for German Linguistics at the Institute of German as a Foreign Philology, Heidelberg University. Her main research interests lie in the fields of language typology, the relation between language and cognition and psycholinguistics of language production and acquisition.She studied German Philology, History, Political Science and Philosophy at the Universities of Marburg and Munich. After her 2. Staatsexamen she held a doctoral scholarship at the Max-Planck-Institute for Psycholinguistics (Nijmegen, NL) and received her PhD from the Free University of Berlin in 1984. Since 2000 she holds a full professorship for German Linguistics at the Institute of German as a Foreign Philology, Heidelberg University. Her main research interests lie in the fields of language typology, the relation between language and cognition and psycholinguistics of language production and acquisition. Currently she is directing several projects which are centred around the question of language specificity in information organisation at text as well as at sentence level. Focus is placed on principles of event construal in language production across typologically diverse languages. Methods used include besides controlled linguistic elicitation techniques eye tracking, chronometrical measuring, memory tests, MEG, and EEG.
