Florence Feiereisen and Kyle Frackman are Ph.D. candidates in German and Scandinavian Studies/Cultural Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Florence’s research interests in twentieth- and twenty-first-century German literature and culture include contemporary German author, musician and disc jockey Thomas Meinecke, the alleged literary Fräuleinwunder and the enigmatic use of photographs in W.G. Sebald’s works. Kyle focuses on German, Swedish, and Finnish cultural productions. In his dissertation, he explores gender, sexuality and uses of time, space, and body in boarding school narratives.
