Herr Erhan Simsek: Kontakt

I studied English, European Studies and American Studies in Ankara, Berlin, Amherst, and Heidelberg. I completed my doctoral studies at Heidelberg University, where I wrote a dissertation on the motif of business in American fiction.
At Bielefeld University, I am a part of the "richtig einsteigen -- Vermittlung literaler Kompetenzen" project. In line with the project, I teach academic writing to students of British and American Studies and work with my colleagues to improve the quality of student writing.
Moreover, I coordinate the introductory days of the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Studies and work as a member of the Committee on Academic Misconduct (Untersuchungskommission für wissenschaftliches Fehlverhalten).
My main areas of research are contrastive rhetoric, academic writing in literary studies, and methodologies of teaching argumentation. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the place of culture in EFL classes and possible difficulties caused by cultural differences.
