Dr. Linda Heß



Linda Heß joined the IEAS in October 2016 as assistant professor (wiss. Mitarbeiterin) after receiving her Ph.D from the University of Münster. She is author of the monograph Queer Aging in North American Fiction (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019) and co-editor of the volume Exploring the Fantastic: Genre, Ideology, and Popular Culture (transcript, 2018).

Her main areas of research and teaching are aging studies, queer studies, and gender studies, but also environmental narratives, science fiction, life writing, and, more generally, U.S. literature and culture from the 19th to the 21st century. In connection with her habilitation project, she has recently become interested in concepts of nature, and nationhood and their interrelations.
