Sabrina Jaromin Ph.D. Student

Sabrina studied Comparative Literature, Philosophy and Japanese at the Free University Berlin where she wrote her bachelor thesis on tropes of life, death and nature in Walter Benjamin. As a recipient of a Fulbright grant she spent a year at the University of Minnesota in 2009/2010 and then pursued a Master’s degree in Cultural Studies at the Humboldt University, Berlin. Her M.A. thesis explored Bakhtin’s concept of the carnival in representations of the body in Roland Barthes and Yoko Tawada.

Sabrina is interested in critical theory, animal studies, queer and feminist theory, deconstruction and theories of media and translation. Her dissertation on hunting looks at human-animal encounters in the practices of filming, collecting and eating. Some of her side projects engage with the use of landscape in the Berlin School films or the communication of “Heimat” in regional museums.
