Carla Plieth was born and raised in Germany where she completed a BA in English and German Literature and Linguistics. She is currently enrolled in the MPhil Critical Approaches to Children’s Literature at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge. If she hadn’t decided to let words dictate her life, she probably would have studied film. She is especially interested in the discourses surrounding gender, sexuality, and feminism as featured and discussed in literature, film, theatre, and art. One day, she’ll probably write a novel, but for now, she’s content analysing other people’s work.
