Jana Sverdljuk is currently working on a postdoctoral project on political vaccine discourses during the covid pandemic. She has been previously working at the National Library of Norway curating archives on migration and making research on Ukrainian famine, Holodomor. Other field of interest is Eastern European migration to the Nordic Countries. Sverdljuk has written her PhD at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, about representations of Eastern European migrant women in media and social welfare institutions in Norway.
The postdoctoral project is about how computer-based methods can help understanding the media’s dissemination of scientific information during the pandemic 2020-2022. The project identifies main themes and expressions that characterize discourses about COVID-19 vaccine in Norwegian newspapers and on Twitter. I am interested in discourse analysis and the way this method is connected to corpus linguistics. I have previously been involved in several projects in the digital humanities, as well as in surveys of media and everyday representations of immigrants in Norway.
Gender studies, corpus linguistics, migration studies.
