Wiebke Bullermann is a Ph.D. candidate in German Literature and Critical Thought. She received her BA from the Freie Universität Berlin. Prior to coming to Northwestern, she worked as a research assistant at the University of Queensland in Australia. Her research focuses on migration, displacement and queerness both within contemporary German society and in literary practice. She is interested in questions of diversity and the challenges of integration and equity in a post-migrant society and the impact failing systems have on the individual, their social identity and their understanding of home - and ultimately the uncanniness of “Heimat”. She combines her research with a strong focus on language and is particularly interested in the transgression of language and the breakdown of communication.
