Gina Marich

Evgenia (Gina) Marich joined the department in 2018. After completing her B.A. in Literature and Philosophy at the University of Melbourne, she spent a number of years in Germany working as a translator and journalist while studying for an M.A. in General and Comparative Literature at the Freie Universität in Berlin. Her M.A. thesis investigated the use of literary tropes like metaphor, allegory and metonymy in Walter Benjamin’s collection of childhood vignettes, Berliner Kindheit um 1900. Her current interests include the relationship between aesthetics and ethics, the philosophy of literature and the influence of classical antiquity on German writers. Some key thinkers here are Nietzsche, Auerbach and Adorno.
