About the lesson

As a current PhD candidate in the German department at Durham University, I hope to complete
my doctoral research on Fredric Jameson's criticism on German Idealism and German Romanticism
and then to gain a research and teaching fellowship in a British institution or abroad in the United
States or Europe funded by the Leverhulme trust or supported by the British Academy. Prior to my
current doctoral work, I completed my International Baccalaureate in Switzerland at the
International School Winterthur (2010-2012) when then I read English Literature and History at the
University of Leicester as a Bachelor of Arts (2012-2015). The classes that I read whilst at Leicester
were Renaissance Drama: Shakespeare and his Contemporaries, From Renaissance to
Enlightenment: Early Modern Europe, C. 1450-1715, Europe Reshaped 1815-1914, Monarchy and
Society, AD 800-1300, Chaucer and the English Tradition, Medieval Literatures, Satire to
Sensibility: Literature 1660-1789 and Romantics to Victorians: Literature 1789-1870. I worked with
Dr. Ian Harris on an undergraduate dissertation on Locke and the State of Nature which
consolidated my interests in several spheres of inquiry, history of ideas, history of political thought,
literary theory and philosophy of history and literature. After my bachelor, I undertook a masters of
letters in Intellectual History at the University of St Andrews (2015-2016) working with Professor
Caroline Humfress on essays concerning Jacques Derrida and History, Alain Badiou, Nietzsche and
Saint Paul, and a masters thesis on Michel Foucault and the ethics of selfhood in the College de
France lectures (1970-1984). In conclusion, I wish to become an academic within the fields of
history of ideas, literary theory, history of political thought, and philosophy of history and literature
specializing in Enlightenment Studies and Post-structuralism.
