Grimm Poetics Professor 2019: Felicitas Hoppe
In 2019, the Kassel Brothers Grimm Poetics Professorship has been awarded to the writer Felicitas Hoppe. In doing so, the Unveristät Kassel honors the work of an author who has enjoyed success with novels and stories as well as with children's books.
Born in Hameln, Felicitas Hoppe (*1960) has been awarded numerous prizes and honors, including the Georg Büchner Prize in 2012. Her best-known narrative texts include the story collection Picknick der Fr iseure (1996), the novel Johanna (2006), the fictional (auto/r) biography Hoppe (2012), and the young adult book Iwein Löwenritter (2008). She processed a world voyage on a container ship in the novel Pigafetta (1999). Last year, she published Pravda. Eine amerikanische Reise (2018), her fifth novel.
In addition to numerous prizes, scholarships and honors, Felicitas Hoppe has already held several poetry lectureships in Germany and abroad. She travels internationally, and her books have also been translated into several languages, with the constellation of travel and writing appearing repeatedly in her literary works. In addition - and this is particularly interesting in the context of the Grimm Poetics Professorship, which is prospectively opening up to different medial modes of narration - Hoppe's play with fictionality and factuality, with (post-)modern modes of writing and self-reflexive procedures, with authenticity and masking, her authorial personality and various role assumptions in film can be found FELICITAS HOPPE SAYS. (D 2018; directors: Oliver Held and Thomas Henke). Film excerpts from this female author's film were shown as part of the event series.
