Dr phil. Jennifer S. Henke

Nice to meet you.

I am a postdoc at the University of Bremen, a scholar in the English department, a specialist in literature, film and gender and a passionate tea drinker with Northern-German charm. 


I am currently holding an independent project position in Bremen where I investigate the representation of science, medicine and birth in literary and cultural artefacts of the long eighteenth century. I am the author of a book on gender and space in cinematic adaptations of Shakespeare's plays (WVT, 2014), have given numerous talks all over the world and have published nationally and internationally on topics ranging from Canadian short stories to films to posthumanism. My teaching record includes but is not limited to science and the media, graphic literature, the epistolary novel, popular Shakespeare, Gothic fiction as well as introductory classes to Anglophone literature(s).
