The Symposium "Writing and Theorizing the Queer Subject" is an occasion to celebrate Professor Eveline Kilian's 65th birthday, paying tribute to her legacy and expressing deep appreciation for her work. Colleagues from around the world will gather to acknowledge her academic accomplishments and contributions to the fields of queer, gender, and feminist theory, cultural studies, and literary criticism. The symposium’s broad international line-up highlights Eveline Kilian’s ongoing engagement for inter-university and international collaborations and networking, as well as her significant role in establishing queer theory and gender studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, bringing together colleagues at HU and internationally. Contributions to the programme, spanning scholarly papers to literary readings, underscore the profound impact of Eveline’s work on the intellectual pursuits of her students and peers and her influential mentorship of students, PhD candidates, and Postdocs.

We extend a warm invitation to join the Department of English and American Studies and the Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies in honouring a career devoted to guiding students, fostering inclusivity, and expanding the boundaries of academic discourse on gender and sexuality.
