About Irina Hron


Dr Irina Hron holds the position of Anna Ahrenberg Postdoctoral Fellow of Literature at the University of Gothenburg’s Department of Literature, History of Ideas, and Religion. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from LMU Munich, Germany and the University of Agder, Norway in 2012. She was the DAAD Lecturer in the Department of Slavic and Baltic Studies, Finnish, Dutch and German at Stockholm University, Sweden from 2011 to 2016. She continued as a postdoctoral researcher in German-language Literature and Cultural Studies at Stockholm University for another one and a half years. In 2017 Dr Hron joined the University of Vienna’s German Department as Franz Werfel Fellow with a specialization in contemporary Austrian Literature.

Her fields of research include European literature around 1900, contemporary German-language and Scandinavian literature, with particular focus on contemporary Austrian literature, discourses of neighborship and community formation in German-language and Scandinavian literature and film as well as contemporary aesthetics and literary theory (after Postmodernism). She is the author of Hervorbringungen – Zur Poetik des Anfangens um 1900 (Beginnings: On the Poetics of Creating, Fabricating, and Generating around 1900) (2013) and the editor of Einheitsdenken – Figuren von Ganzheit, Präsenz und Transzendenz nach der Postmoderne (Thinking in Unity: Figures of Unity, Presence, and Transcendence after Postmodernism) (2015). Dr Hron is currently working on a book, provisionally entitled Poetics of the Neighbor, which addresses the demand to rethink contemporary literary tales as well as ethical and political tropes of being and becoming neighbors. She is also a translator of contemporary Norwegian literature into German.
