Having earned my Bachelor's degree in Anglophone Cultural Studies from the University of Magdeburg (2010), I began my M.A. in American Studies at Berlin's Free University, but then transferred to American Studies Leipzig. While I am more often drawn to the aesthetics of a concrete text (no matter its period and medium) than to any particular issues on the level of content, 19th-century American literature (particularly Hawthorne's short fiction), contemporary American literature, and gender studies (especially as regards the construction and performance of masculinities) rank highest in my list of academic interests. After completing my Master's degree at ASL, I plan on undertaking an additional graduate degree in publishing.
