Nina Schmidt publishes first book:
The Wounded Self: Writing Illness in Twenty-First-Century German Literature
Literary scholar Dr. Nina Schmidt, postdoc in the PathoGraphics project, has published her first book. Part of Camden House’s series ‘Studies in German Literature, Linguistics and Culture’, the study positions Literary Disability Studies within the field of Germanic Studies, establishing its significance as an analytical perspective. Studying texts by Charlotte Roche, Kathrin Schmidt, Verena Stefan, Christoph Schlingensief and Wolfgang Herrndorf in-depth, Schmidt focuses on a range of important voices from new public discourse around the literary and political relevance of illness narratives.
