Assistant Professor of German
Aleksandra Prica’s academic interest focuses on literary, theological, philosophical and cultural discourses from late antiquity to the baroque as well as on the reception of medieval literature in German Romanticism and in the Modern Era. Strong emphasis lies on the examination of the historicity of media and mediality, i.e. on changes in communication practices, new dynamics in medial forms, and reflection on the conditions of communication. In her research she has largely dealt with the blurring boundaries between literary and religious and/or theological discourses and with the medial implications of this relationship.
