Harriet Olulo completed her MA in German Studies at the University of Nairobi in 2016. During her MA, she took a research semester at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. While in Bayreuth, Harriet developed a special interest in translation and culture and therefore critically examined the translation of culture specific items in two German translations of the fictional novel The River Between by the acclaimed Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong'o. After her Master's degree, she continued on to teach German as a Second Language to undergraduate students at the Technical University of Kenya and to German learners at the Goethe Institute in Nairobi.
Harriet enjoys teaching German as a Second Language and hopes to expand her teaching experience and deepen her knowledge in the field of Second Language Acquisition and Second Language Teaching and Learning.
