Corvin Bittner M.A.


Corvin Bittner (they/them) has very recently begun their PhD project in New English Literatures and Cultures at the University of Augsburg, where they also completed their BA and MA. Their PhD project is under the working title “‘The Past Is a Foreign Country’ – Queer Temporality and Memory Cultures in the Digital Age” in which they endeavour an intersectional queer reading of narratives by and about women and queer people that challenge the chrononormative view of time as progressive and linear. Such a reading seeks to investigate how the natural phenomenon of time passing is socially constructed to uphold a white supremacist, capitalist, cisheteropatriarchal system.
