№ 78/2010 from Apr 07, 2010
Sibylle Lewitscharoff, born in 1954 in Stuttgart, has written radio features and radio plays, short and long prose. She became known to a wide audience after her novel Apostoloff was awarded the Leipzig Book Fair Prize in 2009. As the Heiner Müller Visiting Professor of German Literature, she is returning to her alma mater: Freie Universität Berlin, where she studied religion.
The Heiner Müller Visiting Professorship for German Literature was initiated in 2005 jointly by the Stiftung Preußische Seehandlung and Freie Universität Berlin. The visiting professorship is connected to the awarding of the Berliner Literaturpreis (30,000 euros) by the Stiftung Preußische Seehandlung. The award goes to writers whose literary works have made a substantial contribution to the development of German contemporary literature in the areas of lyric poetry, narrative prose, or drama. The previous laureates were Herta Müller, Durs Grünbein, Ilija Trojanow, Ulrich Peltzer, and Dea Loher.
