Patricia Isabella Schumacher's picture

I started my studies in Leipzig in 2009 and while my focus is american studies, my minor in art history has always been close to my heart. For this reason, I spent one year at the University of Vienna concentrating only on art history. In 2013 I got my undergraduate degree with my thesis being entitled “'Have good sex' – Empowerment through Sexuality as represented by the character of Inara Serra in Joss Whedon's Firefly.” This encompasses most of my current research interests, as I am interested in the representation of gender and sexuality, especially in science fiction and popular culture.
