Damian Grammatikopoulos joined the department in Fall 2010 as a Craig Fellow.
Damianos Grammatikopoulos studied German Language and Literature at the University of Belgrade (Serbia), Media Studies at the University of Regensburg (Germany), and holds a Master’s Degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Regensburg. He offered undergraduate classes on graphic novels in Germany for the Department of Media Studies (Regensburg), German language classes in Greece and the USA, and English writing-classes (Expository Writing 101) at Rutgers University. His research areas include the theory of intermediality and intertextuality, adaptations studies, film studies, graphic novels, and literary criticism. He is currently a PhD candidate in the German Department at Rutgers University and his dissertation project is focused on intermedial and intertextual relations in film and comic book adaptations based on Franz Kafka’s oeuvre. Several articles based on his dissertation or recent conference talks are scheduled to appear this year or are currently under review. These include a piece on Peter Eickmeyer’s graphic novel adaptation of Remarque's Im Westen nichts Neues, forthcoming in Colloquia Germanica; an essay on mimetic manifestations of the Kafkaesque in visual and audio-visual media, already published in Humanities; an article on Kafka's The Castle and its cinematic and graphic adaptations, currently under review at the German Studies Review, and an essay that examines wordless graphic and woodcut novels, forthcoming in the collection of essays: Texts with No Words: Communication of Speechlessness.
