Perwein Christian

Begin of page section: Contents:

Throughout his career Christian has straddled the border between between literary and cultural studies. After finishing some work on transnational literary relations between Japan and America, he has now embarked on an examination into contemporary science fiction, particularly its transhuman aspects, and the possible lessons we can draw from it under consideration of a marxist point of view, most prominent among them questions of age.

Keywords: Science Fiction, Transhumanism, Marxism, Transnational Studies

 

 

 

After a year-long stint at the University of Salzburg and dabbling in philosophy, Christian transferred to the University of Graz to study English and American Studies. After receiving his BA and joint degree MA from Graz and spending 6 months at the City College of New York, he is now pursuing his PhD with a dissertation on transhumanism in science fiction. This interdisciplinary work has also earned him the Gabriela-Moser Stipendium 2019/20.
