Sabine Elisabeth Aretz completed her B.A. in Media Studies and English Studies in 2018 and her M.A. in North American Studies at the University of Bonn in 2020. From 2017 to 2020, Sabine held a scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation. Sabine has presented and published research on media depictions of (gendered) perpetration, approaches to the rhetoric and aesthetic of resistance, and collective identity formation – particularly in the context of social movements. Critical Race Theory, Feminist Theory, and New Social Movements are among her core research interests. Sabine’s project for the Graduiertenkolleg Practicing Place with the working title “The Personal is Political’ Revised: Private and Public Spaces in Autobiographical Narratives of the #MeToo Movement aims at exploring the role of autobiographical narratives in the #MeToo movement that reposition notions of ‘the personal’ and ‘the political’ through a rhetorical use of space as a way to re-thinking feminist writings on (breaking down) the dichotomy of public and private space.
