I am a PhD researcher at Bielefeld University, Germany. I publish on cultural constructions of childhood and I teach writing intensive seminars on critical theory and narrative theory, film and popular culture, literary constructions of childhood, zombie culture and biopolitical representation.
I love teaching and my students even recommended me for the Landeslehrpreis NRW 2019, which makes me so proud. I write more on my teaching practice and on education in general in my essays and over at Unconditional-Teaching.com.
You can book me for workshops to share my teaching expertise in writing intensive seminars, effective writing supervision, writing portfolios, student-teacher communication, and more – in German or English.
