For a complete CV see my personal profile at Leipzig University.

Working as a postdoctoral fellow at Leipzig University’s Collaborative Research Centre 1199: "Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition", I have published articles on various and intersectional topics of American studies, including postmodern and naturalist literature, spatial imaginations, border studies, as well as film and horror studies. Recently, the monograph The West and the Word: Imagining, Formatting, and Ordering the American West in Nineteenth-Century Cultural Discourse (2020) was published with de Gruyter (2020).

My research interests include:

  • Imaginations and representations of space in literature
  • Narratives of mobility, agency, and otherness
  • Transhemispheric and transoceanic (re)visions of American imperialism
  • Subcultural and millennialist apocalypticism
