Jürgen Streeck

Associate Professor Ph.D., Freie Universität Berlin

Jürgen Streeck



Jürgen Streeck studies human interaction in everyday life. He is particularly interested in the relationships between linguistic and embodied components (multimodality) and in the cultural foundations of communication. He has conducted fieldwork in Germany, the Philippines, and the U.S. Dr. Streeck also studies how rappers have re-invented language and how a new community, the 'hip-hop nation', has evolved from new ways of using languages.
