Dana Ebermann, M.A.
Short curriculum vitae
I studied English and American Studies at TU Chemnitz with a specialization in English Linguistics and British & American Studies. I spent an ERASMUS semester abroad at Tallinna Ülikool (Tallinn University) in Estonia in the winter term 2008/09. I finished my MA thesis on English null subjects in Facebook status updates in March 2012. After my graduation, I worked in the marketing & sales department of a company in the paper industry. Since October 2014, I have been a member of the ELL department at TU Chemnitz.
I am especially interested in sociolinguistics, new digital discourses and English as an academic language worldwide.
