“I was supposed to go to New York”

Ever since her internship in the German book trade , Laura Bousquet has been interested in Germany and German books. That is why she is currently earning her doctorate in book and communication science binationally, at both Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz and Lumière University Lyon 2.

But the coronavirus has changed her plans. Her next stay in Mainz has been postponed indefinitely, it has become more difficult for her to conduct the interviews she needs for her research and her teaching now takes place online.

In the long term, Laura Bousquet would like to become a professor at a university, ideally in Germany or another European country. But first, she wants to build an international career and gain experience in Asian or English-speaking countries.
