Ellen Pilsworth is Lecturer in German and Translation Studies at the University of Reading. Her research project ‘Knowing the Nazis, Inside and Out: Anti-Fascist Publishing in Austria, Germany and Britain, 1927-40’ has been funded by the British Academy since 2020. From September to December 2023, Ellen will pursue this research at the ILCS's Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies supported by a Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Fellowship. She is now turning this project into a monograph, provisionally entitled Atrocity Stories: Anti-Nazi Refugee Autobiographies for British Readers in the Years of Appeasement and War (1933-45). Her previous research and doctoral thesis (conducted at University College London) explored 18th-century German literature and culture, especially German romanticism and nationalism. She is co-editor (with Dr Dagmar Paulus, 2020) of the volume Nationalism before the Nation State: Literary Constructions of Inclusion, Exclusion and Self-Definition (1756-1871), and has published several articles in Oxford German Studies, German Life and Letters, Publications of the English Goethe Society, and The Journal of Perpetrator Research.
