Bonjour, hello, ciao!
My name is Léna Remy-Kovach. I am a Ph.D. Student in North American Indigenous Literatures at the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg, in Germany. I research the strategies for healing in contemporary horror and fantasy Indigenous novels.
My other projects include the imagery of hunger and cannibalism in contemporary Indigenous horror literature, the commodification of Indigenous monsters in Horror television series, and the use of traditional Euro-American creatures and tropes in modern Horror by Indigenous writers from Turtle Island.
I am also a lecturer in North American Studies at the University of Freiburg. I currently teach introductory classes in Indigenous Studies, a Cultural Studies seminar on mis- and self-representations of Indigenous people in North American visual culture, and a literature seminar on Native American detective fiction. I also created #IndigenousReads, a mothly colloquium dedicated to contemporary Indigenous fiction from Turtle Island, currently in its 4th semester, for which I received a development grant.
