About Me

My name is Katrin Döveling, MA, Dipl., Dr. phil. habil. I am professor at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt. Before, I was professor at the Universitaet of Klagenfurt /Alpen-Adria-Universität, Austria. From 2014-2017, I was a professor at the Institute for Communication and Media Studies at the University of Leipzig, where I completed my Habilitation in 2016. I was Research Fellow and Professor for Communication and Media Studies at the Dresden University of Technology (2009-2014) and Assistant Professor at Institute for Communication Studies, Free University of Berlin (2004 –2009). I earned my PhD at the University of Erfurt, Germany with an international analysis of the role of emotions in community building media. I received a Doctoral Research Scholarship for the University of California Berkeley.

I am interested in the entire spectrum of human emotions, such as sadness, grief, joy, empathy. Currently, I am researching emotions in the context of digitalization, esp.  in social media. But I am equally interested and have been in emotions humans feel towards others they do not know in person, such as Lady Diana, Robert Enke, famous stars.
