Ariane de Waal
PostDoc, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg
Hello! I am a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher in English Literature and Culture at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. My research focuses on British literature and culture of the late 18th and 19th centuries (and covers history of knowledge, conceptions of physicality, and health and disease), as well as British contemporary culture and drama (including depictions of war, terrorism, neoliberalism, and racism). I also teach and publish in the fields of Gender and Queer Studies. My first book 'Theatre on Terror: Subject Positions in British Drama' was published by De Gruyter in 2017, and I am currently working on a second book project on dermatology and the Victorian novel.
