I recently graduated from the research master Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Utrecht where I wrote my thesis on the exclusion of women writers from the field of experimental literature and their being siloed in the art world. In particular, my aim was to position American author Chris Kraus as a feminist experimental writer by analyzing her literary innovation of the novel form in order to gain recognition for her literary merits and to contribute to the establishment of a tradition in experimental women's writing. Working with and for AUP will thus allow me to learn about the other side of academia.
