Event details

The Parkes Institute presents Dr Axel Stähler (University of Kent). Seminar Lecture is chaired by Dr Devorah Baum

Axel Stähler is a Senior Lecturer in Comparative Literature, and Director of the Comparative Literature Year Abroad programmes and undergraduate studies at the University of Kent. He studied English and American culture and literature, German literature, and art history at the University of Bonn, where he completed his PhD and post-doctoral degree (Habilitation). He has taught at the Universities of Bonn and Bamberg, for Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, and was co-ordinator of the international research project 'Fundamentalism and Literature' at the University of Münster. At the University of Bonn, Axel worked as a post-doctoral research fellow in a collaborative research project on Jewish-Christian interrelations. The two most prominent and frequently interconnecting general threads informing his research are intermediality and the formation of identities, especially with respect to Jewish culture and literature. He has published widely on Jewish writers from the Anglophone and German-speaking diasporas and from Israel, as well as on fundamentalism and literature, the eighteenth-century novel and early modern festival culture.
