Project Description

Dr Elystan Griffiths invites expressions of interest for PhDs focused on German literature, or more broadly on German culture, and the creation of alternative worlds. These could take the form of imagined past or futures, utopian writing, writing about faraway cultures, or writing in specific forms such as idylls set in an imagined Arcadia.

If you are considering a comparative investigation, co-supervision will be arranged wherever possible.
