Dr Debbie Pinfold


I teach a wide range of literary topics from the eighteenth century to the present. I am particularly interested in German narrative writing since 1945 and the literature and the cultural memory of the former German Democratic Republic, but I have also taught a range of other authors and topics, including the poetry and novels of Goethe, Schiller's dramas, Thomas Mann, Kafka, Günter Grass and Christa Wolf. In addition I have taught various courses on twentieth-century German history.
