Dr. Ellen Grünkemeier teaches British studies with a focus on literature and its cultural, historical and political contexts, from Shakespeare's plays to contemporary fiction. Her research interests include 19th-century and working-class literature, the new literatures in English, postcolonial theories and cultural studies. After the completion of her PhD project in 2010, her book Breaking the Silence. South African Representations of HIV/AIDS was published by James Currey in 2013. In her second book project on "Appropriating Time and Space: Mid-19th-Century Fiction and Non-Fiction by and about the Working Classes", she analyses the working and living conditions of the working classes. Together with Prof. Dr. Jana Gohrisch, she co-edited the collection of essays Listening to Africa. Anglophone African Literatures and Cultures (Winter 2012) and the proceedings of the 2011 conference of the Association for the Study of the New Literatures in English Postcolonial Studies across the Disciplines (Rodopi 2013). Moreover, she compiled the collection South African Short Stories in English (together with Henning Marquardt, Edition Oberkassel 2014).
