Nicole Nyffenegger-Staub has been teaching medieval English literature and language at the University of Berne for ten years. Her PhD, entitled Authorising History, on medieval historiography and authorship, is about to appear in print. She is presently working on her Habilitation project on the textuality of human skin in English literature.
Nicole’s research interests include discourses of the human body, representations of self and other and constructions of (authorial) identity. Apart from these topics and the ever-present literature/history connection (as a trained medieval historian, she feels she has a certain bias), Nicole’s teaching has covered a wide range of topics in both Old and Middle English literature and language, including literary theory, methodology, cultural and gender studies.
Nicole may be contacted with questions on Independent Studies as well as with study-related questions by (former) Liz students and transfer students.
