Welcome Research Fellow Amina Grunewald!

Amina Grunewald, a PhD Candidate in the Department of American and English Studies at Humboldt University in Berlin, will be joining CEREV as a Short-Term Research Fellow for the month of February 2013.

Amina will be focusing on contemporary Aboriginal cultural and decolonizing self-representations in contemporary literary and visual counter-narratives, with special emphasis on collective and individual memory work and strategies of recovery. She will also investigate curational practices that strive for the transferability of indigenous knowledge to non-native audiences. Amina’s stay at CEREV is co-funded by the Gesellschaft für Kanadastudien (Society for Canadian Studies) and Humboldt University’s English and American Institute. Her full bio can be seen on our “People” page. Welcome, Amina!
