Lucia Ruprecht’s current research project explores the concept of expression, and its relation to forms of authorship, in the literature, cinema and dance of German Expressionism. Her book Dances of the Self in Heinrich von Kleist, E.T.A. Hoffmann and Heinrich Heine (2006) won a Special Citation for the 2007 de la Torre Bueno Prize. She is co-editor of Performance and Performativity in German Cultural Studies (2003), Cultural Pleasure (2009), and New German Dance Studies (2012). She has completed a project on charisma and virtuosity which was carried out from 2005 to 2010 in collaboration with the research centre Kulturen des Performativen at the Free University Berlin. This resulted in a series of articles on virtuosity, especially in Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography, and the work of Robert Walser and W.G. Sebald.
