Ruth Gehrmann, M.A.wiss. Mitarbeiterin, Abteilung Banerjee
My PhD project focuses on organ transplantation in speculative fiction and employs a new historicist approach to interrelate works of different forms of writing. By engaging with life writing, for instance doctor’s autobiographies, works of medical research and fictional representations of medical procedures, I emphasize intrinsic ties between these publications and underline their shared interest in speculation.
My general research interests include speculative fiction, young adult fiction and medical humanities.
