Posted at 12:34 pm under Uncategorized

We would also like to also introduce Laura A. Zander as a member of the OSI 2024 faculty! Laura is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Osnabrück University and was part of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 1385) “Law and Literature” at the University of Muenster (WWU), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), where her research focused on Literature as Equity in British Cultural History most specifically on legal fictions and the works of Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell and the Brontës. Her current research at the University of Osnabrück on Subjects on the Move in Literature and Human Rights is closely connected to this year’s OSI and in collaboration with the law school at the WWU Muenster. Laura will convene the workshop on interdisciplinarity along with Leila Neti and Peter Schneck.

Laura holds an M.A. in English Literature and Linguistics and both state examinations in Law after completing her postgraduate judicial service traineeship. After receiving her PhD by the faculty of language and literatures at the University of Munich (LMU) she worked as a lecturer in the English Department. She also worked as a research assistant and taught at the Faculty of Law at the Universities of Munich, Frankfurt and Saarbruecken, for a master’s program in Digital Forensics. Publications include Writing Back / Reading Forward: Reconsidering the Postcolonial Approach (Berlin 2019), as well as articles on law and literature, gender and postcolonial studies, and both South African and Caribbean literature
