Dr Katharina Herold
Lecturer in English
I joined Queen’s in October 2019 to teach Prelims Paper 3: Literature in English 1830-1914; I also teach at Brasenose College and several other Oxford colleges. Since September 2017 I have been Associate Lecturer at Goldsmiths College, where I teach English and Comparative Literature to graduate and undergraduate students.
Previously, I trained and worked as a theatre director in Germany before embarking on a BA in English and Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London, followed by an MSt in English Literature (1830 – 1914) at Oxford. In 2017, I was a visiting scholar at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, where I became a member of the international research network ‘Writing 1900’ led by Prof. Gesa Stedman and Dr Stefano Evangelista. I am currently preparing my first monograph ‘The Indispensable East’ in Decadent Literature in England and Germany 1880−1920 which is based on my thesis, which was supported by an AHRC grant.
