This workshop is part of the Humanities Workshop Series organised by Zukunftskolleg Fellows and Alumni and by members of the Department of Literature at the University of Konstanz. 

On Friday, 13.04.2018, 14:00-17:00, Dr. Timothy Baker will lead a workshop on "Teaching Citizenship with the Humanities" at the University of Konstanz. Dr. Baker is Senior Lecturer in Scottish and Contemporary Literature at the University of Aberdeen. His research and teaching includes is centred on Scottish and contemporary literatures, but includes smatterings of nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature, and dollops of texts earlier still. At the moment he is most excited about combining queer, posthuman, and feminist theories in order to talk about animals in contemporary Scottish, Irish, and other literatures.
