Jana Declercq

Jana Declercq graduated from the University of Antwerp in 2014 and has a master’s degree in Linguistics, and is currently working on a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Geert Jacobs.

She aims to analyse the lifecycle of news stories on health issues, taking a case-oriented, multi-sited linguistic ethnographic perspective. She focuses on the complex discursive practices and professional routines that shape health-related media content, and has done fieldwork at a pharmaceutical company, the editorial board of a TV show, and at a women’s magazine.
