Faculty of Humanities
State Examination French/English Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Ph.D. French Literature University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada
My main area of interest focusses on the fictional works of Georges Bernanos, in particular the author’s depiction of women. Lately, I have also become interested in the Catholic writer’s representation of suicide. I am extending my comparative studies on the suicide theme in Georges Bernanos’ fictional writings as well as Stefan Zweig’s literary œuvre.
