Ph.D. Student Contact info tobi.wilczek@mail.utoronto.ca  Background I joined the Ph.D. Program in the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures after obtaining an Hon.

My interests remain widespread, having previously researched in archives in Germany and presented on Bertolt Brecht, Herta Müller, and more recently Walter Benjamin. From April to August 2017, I will be performing research at the Humboldt University under the supervision of Prof. Joseph Vogl, while also participating in the PhD-Net “Das Wissen der Literatur” in cooperation with Harvard University, Princeton University, and University of California, Berkeley.
