Denise Henschel

Denise Henschel is a PhD student in the German Section of the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. In her dissertation project, she analyses the ways in which contemporary German literature and film negotiate the epistemic premises of dominant forms of kinship while performing new forms of kinship through their textual aesthetics. With Francesco Albé, she is currently co-organising a reading group about ‘Queer Aesthetics’ in contemporary German culture. Prior to the PhD, Denise taught German language at undergraduate degree level at Cardiff University and The University of Warwick.
