Spring 2022 Max Kade Visiting Professor of German Christiane Frey hails from the Department of German and Comparative Literature at the University of Aachen, Germany. Dr. Frey’s work has focused on the question of form in literary works extending from the seventeenth century to the present. She has studied form in the novel and novella in conjunction with eighteenth-century biological and medical literature, Leibniz and calculus, Kepler’s and Lambert’s writings on physics, philosophical anthropology and early psychology. Her recent scholarship has addressed the intersection of political theology and astronomy in the theatrum mundi of the baroque era and on possible worlds theory.
