Marina Pingler

Visiting Scholar

Marina Pingler is a visiting scholar at the Department for Comparative Literature, mentored by Professor Martin Puchner. Her PhD project focuses on collectively held visions of future climate change in American culture and literature – so-called “climate imaginaries” – that have emerged between 2016 and 2023 but remain marginalized in climate change discourse. In her project, she examines the co-production of alternative scenarios of future climate change at the intersection of activism and literature and asks how medial and genre-specific particularities influence these alternative imaginaries. Marina Pingler is a research fellow at the University of Tübingen, Germany. Her research interests include environmental criticism, speculative fiction, science communication, Native American cultures and literature, and popular culture.
