21.3.18// working on a new topic for my next paper. It’s going to be on Marieluise Fleißers Tales but I need to formulate the Fragestellung and it´s always difficult at the beginning. I´m very happy because I also proposed to a professor my work on feminist literary theory - the écriture féminine thing - and the analysis of Ferrante and she was enthusiast about it. So she accepted me for a paper on Christa Wolfs Medea. Stimmen and I´m also going to present my work on Ferrante in her Bachelor course (I don´t know If I should be excited or scared!).
