Kaminski, Johannes , PhD.

I am a scholar of comparative literature with a focus on transcultural topics,
including the rewriting of the Western canon in East Asia and contemporary
utopianism. While I remain interested in German and Chinese classics, I am currently examining the role of science fiction in supporting grand visions of humanity’s salvation through technology and top-down government. After obtaining my PhD at the University of Oxford, I held a string of fellowships around the world, starting
with a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Cambridge, an Academia Sinica Fellowship at Taipei (Taiwan) and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Vienna.
