Karolin Rabey

M.A. Student Contact karolin.rabey@mail.utoronto.ca Background I studied at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität in Heidelberg from 1999 until 2005 and obtained a M.A. degree in German in English. After living and acquiring my first experiences as a teacher in San Sebastián, Spain, I returned to Heidelberg and passed my 1st state examination in 2007. Then I entered my teacher’s training at a Middle and High School in Ulm, Germany, and worked there as a German and English teacher until 2015. After moving to Canada and taking care of our now 2-year-old son and working as a private tutor, I am now looking forward to being back at university and being able to focus again on my interest and passion for German literature and cinema.   Read More »

Bachelor of Arts in German Studies and Philosophy at the University of Toronto, where I am currently researching about philological implications in the works of Franz Kafka and Paul Celan. 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 researched 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. Most recently, I have joined the CAUTG's Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies as Editorial Assistant. Constantly trying to look beyond my own 'discipline' of study, I have been dealing with questions concerning the inter- (or trans-) relations of disciplines, philologies, and cultures in general, most recently having begun studying Anishinaabemowin and delving into Theoretical Physics.
