// Dr. Deborah Muijnck Dr. Deborah de Muijnck is the academic coordinator of the European PhD Network "Literary and Cultural Studies" at Justus Liebig University Giessen. In this position, she is responsible for the organisation and management of national and international research events, such as conferences, summerschools, and symposia, and represents the GCSC at these events. Furthermore, she supports the strategic management of the GCSC and is responsible for the Centre's internationalization, specifically in the context of bi-national degrees.

From 2019 - 2023, she was a research assistant at the Department of English Literature at RWTH Aachen University, where she completed her dissertation in 2022. In this work, titled Cultural Models of Narrative Identity: The Case of Military Autobiographical Writing, she sets out how British soldiers and veterans reconstruct their narrative identities after wartime experience through non-fictional autobiographical storytelling using cultural models of narrative identities, as well as narrative methods of trauma incorporation and narrative neutralization techniques. Her teaching foci are British and Anglophone literary studies, especially canonical and post-colonial literature. Other notable publications such as Pandemic Storytelling (Brill, forthcoming) address the reciprocal influence of pandemics and narrativity, as well as the influence of non-normative life experiences on narration (Poetics of Disturbances - Narratives of Non-Normative Minds and Bodies. Brill, forthcoming.). Winter term 2022/23, she also functioned as a guest lecturer in the Studium Fundamentale at Witten/Herdecke University.

Her second monograph focuses on alternative epistemologies and ways of being from an ecocritical narratological perspective. In addition to ecocriticism, cognitive narratology, and the medical humanities, her research interests include contemporary literature and literary history, as well as postcolonial/indigenous literature.

Dr. de Muijnck worked as an online editor in Cologne, Berlin, Dortmund, Munich, and Aachen, and traveled around the globe as an analog photographer and artist from 2015 until she settled in academia in 2019. ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7863-2011
