On this website, you will find a collection of my, Krisha Kops, journalistic work, ranging from articles, essays, and interviews to reviews. As I am of German and Indian origin, the content will feature German as well as English articles. My writing focuses in the following order on philosophy, politics, culture, and lifestyle. Thereby, I often attempt to find a connection between the academic world and those who are interested, even though they might not be too familiar with it. In addition, my aim is to approach topics from an intercultural point of view, with special emphasis on “Indian” and “Western philosophy” (please apologize for the crude simplification).
I studied Philosophy (BA) and Journalism (MA) at London and Westminster University. At the moment I am writing my Ph.D. in intercultural philosophy about the modern philosophical receptions of the Bhagavad Gītā at the University of Hildesheim. My English journalistic work appeared predominantly in Times of India, Deutsche Welle (English), and Maxim. My German work in Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazine, Hohe Luft, Psychologie Heute, Deutsche Welle (German), Playboy, GQ, Münchner Feuilleton, The European, Transform Magazine, Mundus etc.
As far as my creative writing is concerned, I won the U20 Poetry Slam Championship (of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) in 2005. In 2012/2013 I participated in the creative writing school Bayerische Akademie des Schreibens in the Literaturhaus Munich. The novel which I partially wrote during this time is now with my agent.
