Magdalena "Maggie" Woegerer brings extensive international experience to Indiana University: She grew up in different countries and developed an interest for questions in the field of communication and culture from a young age on. Maggie completed her BA and MA in Media, Communication and Culture at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria/University of Central Oklahoma, USA. Her Master-thesis explores the role of humor in organization communication with potential of humor in work life and the work performance by including empirical field work. After completing a further education degree in teaching German as a foreign/second language from the Goethe Institut, she also lived a longer time in Chongqing, China to work as a Lecturer for Communication. Maggies international background as well as her global work experiences in the free economy (organization communication, editing) make her a researcher with an interdisciplinary approach and also an open mind for triangulate methods. Her main research interests belong to humor and communication, intercultural as well as organizational communication. Maggie was attracted by the interdisciplinary structure of our department at IU, especially of the Experimental Humanities Lab of Fritz Breithaupt.
