Professor Ricarda Schmidt


I try to give an outline of the topic concerned in lecture form and then encourage students to develop their own ideas in presentations and essays, taking lectures and secondary literature into account, but engaging closely with the primary text/film in order to construct an independent argument. My teaching draws closely on my own research at all levels. In particular, I have published books, book chapters and/or articles on E.T.E. Hoffmann, Heinrich von Kleist, 20th-century women's writing, GDR literature, literature in its political context,and education.
