Welcome

Prof. Dr. Stefan Pfänder is an Interactional Linguist and Full Professor (Chair) at Freiburg University, Germany (http://www.romanistik.uni-freiburg.de/pfaender/766) and Director of the Hermann Paul School of Linguistics Freiburg-Basel. One of his main research areas is Collaborative Storytelling in multimodal talk-in-interaction. This research focus has been developed out of an interdisciplinary research project with social psychology, funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation (10.11.2.066 Wiedererzählen).
 Narrative research within the Thyssen project was followed up during a FRIAS senior fellowship and the successful co-acquisition of a Research Training Group funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG-GRK 1767 Faktuales & Fiktionales Erzählen), a lead agency project funded by the German Science Foundation and the SNF on “Emergent Remembering” (Pf-699-8/1) and a cooperative project with cultural anthropology and psychosomatics / body psychotherapy which investigates and models the synchronization of interactants in everyday and clinical interaction and is co-funded by the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) and the European Union (Marie-Curie Fellowships).
