Felix Sprang

Felix Sprang has worked mainly on the intersection of literature and the ‘arts and sciences’ in early modern England as well as on the connection between literature and science across all literary periods. He is also interested in the aesthetics of literary texts and the methods derived from the project “Kulturwissenschaft”, in particular the strand devised by Aby Warburg and Ernst Cassirer. Felix Sprang has studied English, Biology, Philosophy and Paedagogics at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of Hamburg, and has received his PhD from the University of Hamburg with a dissertation that probes into literary reflections of scientific thought in early modern London. That book was largely conceived as Aby Warburg Scholar at the Warburg Institute, University of London. As Assistant Professor at the University of Hamburg he wrote his second book (Habilitation) which revisits poetic form and calls for a reappraisal of form from the vantage point of intellectual history and phenomenology. Having taught at the HU Berlin and the LMU Munich, he is now teaching English Literature at the University of Siegen.
