Cornelia Rémi



After studies in Munich and Umeå, Cornelia Rémi earned her MA and PhD in German literature at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, where she also finished her habilitation thesis in 2015. Between October 2016 and March 2018 she served as acting Chair of German Philology at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen. Her research focuses on transformation processes between different eras in the history of literature, on interferences of poetry and spirituality, intermediality, erudite communication and strategies of poetic self-reflection. She has published book-length studies on Friedrich Spee and Clemens Brentano and is currently preparing her third book (based on her habilitations thesis), which examines functions of secrets and secrecy in mid-19th-century narrative fiction. Among her published papers are chapters on the composition of early modern devotional texts, King Solomon as an ambiguous literary authority, emblematics, wordless picture books, Albrecht von Haller’s theology and the Swedish reception of Anne of Green Gables. As a founding member of the Writing Center at her university and a passionate teacher she regularly develops student workshops on different aspects of creative academic writing. She contributes several seminar and workshop units to an advanced training programme in literature pedagogics organised by the Bücherpiraten, a society for reading and literacy promotion in Lübeck. In 2016/2017 she served as a jury member for the "Spezial Prize" categories ("newcomers" and "liftetime achievement)" of the German Children's Literatur Award.
