About

Greta

GRETA OLSON is Professor of English and American Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Giessen and was Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities “Law as Culture” in Bonn (2014, 2016). She is a general editor of the European Journal of English Studies (EJES), and the co-founder of the European Network for Law and Literature.

At the University of Giessen, I wish to facilitate work on the nexus between political and artistic practices and academic analysis, and am interested in mentoring projects concerning cultural approaches to law/Law and Literature, the politics of form, critical media studies, American Studies, and feminism and sexuality studies. As a general editor of EJES, I wish to encourage proposals for special issues that span divides between cultural theory, literary analysis, and linguistics and reflect on the study of English within Europe. With Jeanne Gaakeer, I run the European Network for Law and Literature Research.
