Dr Maren Conrad

Dr Conrad is Postdoc Research Associate/Academic Coordinator of the Graduate School ‘Practices of Literature’ at the Westfälische-Wilhelms Universität Münster. Her fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub is in collaboration with the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies.

The current research Dr Conrad is conducting focuses on narrative and spatial strategies in stories of the “last man” in a post-apocalyptic sujet in literature and media in 20th and 20st century. It is a unique project within the field of comparative literature, as it combines and compares European and American concepts of the post-apocalyptic as well as German and English speaking narrations within three different kinds of media, reading the genre as a global cultural phenomenon.  

Dr Conrad gave a lecture on Tuesday, 4 October 2016 at 6.30pm in the Trinity Long Room Hub on 'Beginning at the End. Post-apocalyptic Robinsonades in Contemporary Literature, Film and Games'.
