Jana Keck studied English and American Studies and Linguistics at the University of Stuttgart. Since 2017 she works with an international team in the DFG-funded research project “Oceanic Exchanges: Tracing Global Information Networks in Historical Newspaper Repositories, 1840-1914.” In her own research and teaching, Jana Keck is particularly interested in American immigrant literature. In her PhD project, she uses digital corpus analysis methods to examine German newspapers in the United States in relation to German emigration to America in the 19th century.
