Annemarie Mönch is a PhD student at the Chair of English Literature at the University of Erfurt, where she was awarded a Christoph-Martin-Wieland dissertation scholarship. In her doctoral project, she focusses on queer and queering nature writing(s) in Algernon Blackwood’s works with an occasional glance at other late Victorian and modernist shorter prose fiction. What interests her is how the so-called non-human (trees and forests in particular) emerges within the narratives – articulated by sounds and smells – as story-making agent.
