PhD student

Hannah Klaubert is a doctoral student based at Stockholm University and the Graduate Center for the Study of Culture (GCSC) at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany.

Her research focuses on fiction from the last three decades dealing with nuclear accidents and disasters. Through an (eco)narratological analysis of the aesthetic forms and strategies employed in literature and film, she aims to understand how the imperceptible threat of radiation and its impact on the human and non-human world are negotiated.

Hannah holds a BA in Comparative Literature and Philosophy from Freie Universität Berlin and an MA in Cultural Analysis from the University of Amsterdam. In Stockholm, she participates in the Doctoral School “Environmental Humanities” and in Giessen, she is a speaker of the Research Group Oikos.

Research focus:

Ecocriticism, (eco)narratology, nuclear disasters, nuclear humanities, environmental literature and film
