Exeter Fellow discusses women warriors on BBC
Professor Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly, Exeter’s Fellow in German, appeared on Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4 this morning. Professor Watanabe-O’Kelly talked to presenter Jenni Murray about her new book, Beauty or Beast, which examines the figure of the woman-warrior in German literature from the Renaissance to the present.
She discussed the evolution of the woman-warrior figure through German history, its links to the development of Germany itself, and the influence this figure had on the theories of Freud.
