Life After Ertegun House

In September 2018, I began a PhD in Germanic Studies at my alma mater, Trinity College Dublin. My proposed project, funded by the Irish Research Council, will compare texts by the Swiss and Austrian writers Christian Kracht and Christoph Ransmayr through the lens of 'speculative realism'. While it's great to be back in "dear, dirty Dublin", I do miss the company of my Ertegun compatriots, and eagerly await my first visit back to the House!
