Mareike Keller is Academic Staff Member at the Chair of English Linguistics (Anglistik I). Following her studies in Slavic Languages, English Linguistics and German Linguistics at the University of Tübingen, she received a doctorate from the University of Mannheim in 2014 (dissertation topic: Phrasemes in bilingual discourse). Currently she is working on a post-doc project exploring multilingualism in medieval and early modern times.
