It is always a highlight when we can welcome an external speaker to the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. This semester, we invited the German author Kerstin Carlstedt who had an Amazon Bestseller before Christmas with her publication of 'Let’s play: Fortnite' (Carlsen: 2019), a selection of interviews with Germany’s favourite Fortnite YouTubers. Meanwhile, Kerstin Carlstedt’s first teenage novel 'Die Trolle von Shabby Sands' (forthcoming Fischer: 2020) is keenly awaited at the end of April.
