Dr. STEFAN SEEBER is a Lecturer at the University of Freiburg. His main research interests are medieval romance, its poetics, and its modern adaptations. His first book dealt with the poetics of laughter in Middle High German romance (Poetik des Lachens, Berlin 2010), and he recently published a monograph on the genre development of the pre-modern novel in Germany (Diesseits der Epochenschwelle. Der Roman als vormoderne Gattung in der deutschen Literatur, Göttingen 2017). This lecture is based on his current project on theories of space in medieval texts and in early 20th-century medievalism. It is sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation.
