Dr Heike Bauer

MA (Wales), PhD (London)
Senior Lecturer in English Literature and Gender Studies

Founding Director of Birkbeck Interdisciplinary Gender and Sexuality Studies (BiGS)

Heike Bauer’s main teaching is on the BA Arts and Humanities and the MA Modern and Contemporary Literature. She supervises doctoral students on gender and sexuality in fiction, culture and criticism since the nineteenth-century including projects that cut across conventional period and disciplinary boundaries.

She has published widely on literature, translation and the modern history of sexuality. In particular, her work has explored the gendered intersections between sexual politics and cultural politics, c.1860-1950, and, more recently, turned attention to the rise of lesbian and feminist graphic memoirs in the twenty-first century.

Heike Bauer’s research has been funded by the British Academy, the AHRC and the Wellcome Trust.
