Special Event: Mary Helen Dupree, Georgetown University

Description:
Dr. Mary Helen Dupree, Professor of German, Georgetown University, will discuss her book, Actress-Writers in Germany from Enlightenment to Romanticism. Dr. Dupree received her Ph.D. in German Literature from Columbia University in 2006. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice University for two years before accepting her current position as Assistant Professor at Georgetown. Her teaching and research interests are concentrated on late-18th and early-19th-century literature and culture, with emphasis on gender and performance studies. Her current research project focuses on the theory and practice of literary declamation in Germany around 1800. Her talk will explore the transformation of the image of the actress in late 18th- and early 19th-cantury Germany via the literary self-stylizations of three German "actress-writers" in this period (Sophie Albrecht, Marianne Ehrmann, Elise Buerger). {Will appear in FYI on Mar 1, 2012
