Berit Martha Christel Huntebrinker

Assistant Professor

 
Office:
E2 062 ( Universitetsveien 25, Kristiansand )

I am a PhD Fellow in literary studies focussing on Norwegian picturebooks and comics from and ecocritical perspective. My background is an M.A. in Comparative Literature, Scandinavian Studies, and Latin American Studies from the Goethe-University in Frankfurt am Main.  

My main research questions are how multimodal texts for young audiences narrate different concepts of environmental citizenship and how visual and verbal narrative strategies interplay. Employing econarratology, I investigate formal narrative structures that focus on the relationships between humans and the world in which they live.
