Carla Suhr has been a Senior Lecturer in English Philology at the University of Helsinki since August 2014. She returned to teach at her alma mater (PhD 2011) after a two-year Senior lectureship at the University of Turku. Before starting her undergraduate and graduate degrees in English philology, she obtained an MA in History, so it is no accident that her academic interests combine both fields. In very broad terms, she investigates the construction of texts in early modern England, with a focus on early news discourse and medical discourse. She also works with corpus compilation and is interested in extending the use of corpus linguistic methods to visual features of the printed page.
