Jenny Hartman

is a researcher in English Linguistics. Jenny's research departs from the assumption that human cognition and language are shaped by our bodily, multisensory experiences. In her research, she considers how different ways of functioning in and perceiving the world are reflected in language use, as well as in communication more broadly. She is especially interested in how individuals with autism, anxiety disorders, and Tourette Syndrome convey their sensory experiences, emotions, and thoughts.
