Prof. Dr. Guido Rings
Professor Rings has widely published within different areas of Hispanic literature and cinema. This includes the authored books The Other in Contemporary Migrant Cinema. Imagining a New Europe? (Routledge 2016), La Conquista desbaratada (“The conquest upside down”, Iberoamericana 2010), “Conquered Conquerors” (Eroberte Eroberer, Vervuert 2005) and “Narrating against the Tide” (Erzählen gegen den Strich, Peter Lang 1996). He has also edited the first dossier on Hispanic film for the journal Iberoamericana, entitled La otra cara de la migración (“The Other side of migration”, 2009), and co-edited the volumes Neo-colonial mentalities in contemporary Europe (with A. Ife, 2008), “Worlds of Images, Worlds of Texts, Worlds of Comics” (Bilderwelten, Textwelten, Comicwelten, with F. Leinen, 2007) and European Cinema: Inside Out (with R. Morgan-Tamosunas, 2003), and he is the author of more than 50 refereed articles and numerous review-articles.
While his research focuses on concepts of culture and identity in contemporary Hispanic narrative or film, other work explores socio-political and cultural aspects in French and German narrative. Within this framework, he has co-organised two international conferences, one of which received considerable support by the British Academy, and he currently supervises several PhD projects.
