About André Menke


I was born and grew up in the city of Dortmund, Germany. I studied German literature and social psychology/social anthropology at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, where I obtained my B.A. and M.A. degrees.


I recently completed my Ph.D. at the University of Gothenburg after presenting a doctoral thesis dealing with German so-called ‘pop literature’ after the turn of the millennium. The title of the thesis is Pop, Literatur und Autorschaft. Literarische Strategien und Inszenierungen bei Wolfgang Welt, Rocko Schamoni und Rafael Horzon. In my research, I focus mainly on contemporary German literature, pop culture and authorship.
