Hi there! My name is Heiko Zimmermann. I'm a lecturer in English literature and culture.

The things I'm currently doing: teaching English Literature and Culture at the University of Education Ludwigsburg, writing both scholarly papers and articles for magazines, talking at conferences, doing web and print design, discussing contemporary literature on stage, playing the guitar, growing veggies and flowers in my allotment.

Things I did in the past: writing a PhD thesis about the reconfigurations of authors and readers in digital literature, teaching literature at the Universities of Trier, Bayreuth and Sivas, and Trinity College Dublin, studying a teachers' course of Physics and English, working with mentally disabled people, writing in a creative writing group in Leeds/UK, working with exchange students, playing volleyball, coding and working as a swapper in the C64 demo scene, selling my first computer game to a publishing house when I was sixteen, living in a lovely flat with a tiled stove for seven years, starring in a GCSE listening comprehension test... (to be continued)

You can contact me via email. If you are a student of mine, rather come to my office hours. Sometimes I offer sweets and cookies.

For my students at PH Ludwigsburg, the Universities of Trier, Bayreuth and Trinity College Dublin, I have collected some materials here.
