Jutta Eming joined the Department of Central, Eastern and Northern European Studies in the Fall of 2007. She is a medievalist and early modernist, with a strong interest in theory and interdisciplinary work. Her research and teaching focuses on German and (to a degree) French Medieval and Early Modern Literature, especially courtly novels, love and adventure novels, short stories, and religious drama. Her theoretical interest includes concepts of emotions, the body and performativity; media history and theories of incest; concepts of the marvelous and the fantastic; genre theory, gender, and psychoanalytical approaches to literature.
