Dr. Lina Wilhelms was awarded the Elise Richter Prize by the German Romance Studies Association for her doctorate at Paderborn University on Sunday, 24 September. The prize for outstanding doctorates and habilitations is awarded every two years on the occasion of the Romance Studies Day, which took place this year in Leipzig.

Wilhelms was a research assistant at the Institute of Romance Studies from 2017 to 2023 and completed her doctorate at the Faculty of Cultural Studies in February with summa cum laude. The dissertation thesis is entitled: "Habría que inventar un nuevo género policial" - Kapitalismus- und Erkenntniskritik in Ricardo Piglia's Kriminalromanen".

Prof. Dr. Stefan Schreckenberg from the Institute for Romance Studies in Paderborn was the first reviewer of the thesis: "Lina Wilhelms provides us with the first German-language monograph that deals comprehensively with the work of Ricardo Piglia and at the same time makes a substantial contribution to the history of the Argentine crime novel - theoretically very convincingly perspectivised by the question of the genre's potential for epistemological and social criticism."
