Theresa Meerwarth is a CAPAS research associate within the event management team. She studied Romance Philology and Political Science at Heidelberg University and the University of Seville, Spain. Her interest in Latin American literatures and cultures comes from her personal and professional travels throughout South America. Most recently, she spent a few months at the University of Chile in Santiago after receiving a BWS-plus research scholarship.

In addition to her position at CAPAS she is also a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Modern Philology where she is working on a thesis concerning representations of national socialism in the writing of Roberto Bolaño. Her research interests concern conceptions of the uncanny in relation to the apocalypse as well as de- and postcolonial studies.
