I am a doctoral student in Spanish Literature since fall 2018.
In my thesis project, I want to explore critique of work in contemporary Spanish fiction. Focusing on the wave of counterhegemonic novels published in Spain the last decade, I will examine labor, not mainly from the material misery intensified by increasingly precarious working conditions, but in particular from a social, psychological and philosophical perspective related to a precarity of the soul in the characters. Furthermore, I will examine this individual precarity in relation to interpersonal relationships and the shaping of the collective soul.
I have a general interest in the interweaving of fiction and politics, and I have studied, among other things, expressions in form and content of the interlacing of collectivity and the individual in the Spanish writer Belén Gopegui. Previously I have also studied translation studies, Portuguese and gender studies.
