Leonie is originally from Frankfurt / Main, Germany. After completing a year of voluntary work at an Archaeological Museum, she moved to Tübingen where she received her BA in German Studies with a minor in Rhetoric at Eberhard Karls Universität. In her BA Thesis, she examined the correlation of spaces and metadramatic dimensions in Max Frisch’s play “Biographie: Ein Spiel.” As part of her Master’s program in Literary and Cultural Theory, Leonie came to UNC Chapel Hill as an exchange student and TA in 2016/17. She then successfully applied to join the CDG program. Her research interests include drama, theater and performance as well as spatial theories and narratology.
