Iuditha Balint

Dr Iuditha Balint is a literary and cultural scholar. Before taking over the management of the Fritz-Hüser-Institut in 2018, she worked as a Germanist at the University of Mannheim, the University of Virginia and the University of Duisburg-Essen. She completed her doctorate at the University of Mannheim in 2015 with a thesis on the dissolution of the boundaries of labour in contemporary literature.

Her research is located at the cultural-scientific boundaries between the humanities, social sciences and business administration; her research interests include discourse analysis and narrative research, the intertwining of literature and economics, and German-language literature on the world of work since the 18th century with a focus on contemporary works. In recent years, the Weimar Republic, texts by female authors about work, writing as work and the literary industry with its functional conditions have increasingly become the focus of her research.
