About Us: Meet the Staff

Do you ever wonder who the lovely people behind this even lovelier blog are? Well, here is your chance to find out. Please scroll down to meet the staff of Big Screen Philosophers.

Juliane Borosch, 24 years old, is a graduate student of American Studies and Media Practice. Her passion for the English language and Anglophone culture began when she was 12 years old and just desperately needed someone to be there for her “when the rain starts to pour”. In F*R*I*E*N*D*S she found this support system and, sick of the lip-synced German version, started watching the original show. She’s been hooked on the language and (American) television ever since. F*R*I*E*N*D*S will always be her first love, but there have been and are a (still respectable) large number of other shows that engage her. For BSP she now gets to share her love and sometimes extreme (and almost always politically incorrect and sarcastic) views with fellow enthusiasts out there. When she’s not immersed in television or doing world-changing things for university, she can regularly be found in a football stadium cheering her lungs out for Borussia Dortmund. 

*Note: No, she doesn’t always sound/ write that puffed up. It’s just for dramatic effect and an air of professionalism.

Katharina Heidenreich is a 27-year-old scholar of British and Postcolonial Studies and Media Practice. If you don’t find her eating pastries or waiting for snow, she spends parts of her precious time as a student assistant for the department of Medieval Studies. Note that this does absolutely not turn her into a sword-swinging, knight-festival-visiting, herb-collecting, I-think-I-was-really-born-a-wizard kind of nerd. In fact, she is addicted to nail polish. Apart from that, she can be a real cry-baby when her favourite characters tend to die almost immediately after having stolen her heart. Too bad that she loves to watch gangster movies and telly shows in which deaths occur more often than she can cope with.

Natalie Weingart is the 24-year-old precious pearl of the British and Postcolonial Studies department – and she also studies Media Practice. Her nose is usually buried in books 24/7 (with the exception of handkerchief breaks or sporadically also sleep). She usually compares books to their movie or TV adaptations and generally arrives at the conclusion that the book is way better (Shame on you, movie-makers! Next time more effort, please!) Apart from that, she loves to spice up the BSP Command Centre with pretty pictures of delightful little unicorns and grumpy English muffins.
