Heidi Schulze

Heidi Schulze is a Doctoral researcher at the Department of Media and Communication, LMU Munich. She currently works in a large-scale research project on (online) radicalization dynamics (MOTRA), that aims at improving our understanding of the complex mechanism and dimensions of (online-)radicalization processes by employing multimethodological, computational approaches. In her PhD thesis, she studies hyper partisan news websites in their function as normalizers of extremist speech and attitudes, aiming at a better understanding of how this novel news media kind contributes to radicalization dynamics.
