Professor Andrea Sieber has been holder of the Professorship of Medieval German Literature at the University of Passau since 2016. Prior to that, she headed the young researchers' group 'Middle High German texts in German teaching' at the University of Duisburg-Essen and held a deputy professorship for German teaching methodology at the RWTH in Aachen. The main points of emphasis in her research include cultural study approaches in medieval studies, media history and media theory, and the reception of the Nibelungen myth. She combines philological analyses with transmedial perspectives. Her main aim is to make us aware of the cultural heritage of the Middle Ages.
'The Middle Ages are omnipresent: not just in literary adaptations, opera and theatre performances or museum productions, but also in comics, fantasy novels, film and television productions and in the gaming culture. As a mediaevalist involved in transmedial research, I investigate the question of what image of the Middle Ages modern media convey. The link between the Middle Ages and the modern age can enable us to re-explore the potential for insights into our cultural heritage scientifically on the one hand, whilst on the other, those insights can also be imparted to a broader public.'
