New postdoc: Jakob Schweppenhäuser

In April 2015 I was employed as a postdoc at Aalborg University’s research centre CERCOP (Centre for Research in Contemporary Poetry)

I was born in Aarhus in 1983 and I graduated from Aarhus University with an MA i Danish. In March 2015, I finished my PhD at Aarhus University when I defended my thesis entitled Mere lyd! Ny dansk lydlig lyrik [More Sound! Contemporary Danish Oral Poetry]. In April 2015 I was employed as a postdoc at Aalborg University’s research centre CERCOP (Centre for Research in Contemporary Poetry); the employment is for one year. At Aalborg University I will continue my research within the field I explored in my thesis: various forms of lyric poetry in its verbally articulated form and in interaction with music, mainly lyrics. My main interests are the relationship between verbal and written communication and between language and music, intermedial production of meaning and the voice. My interest in this subject goes beyond my research, and I like to artistically explore language, music and image as well. I am looking forward to my time at Aalborg University!
