Coming from an American Studies background, I'm currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at Leipzig’s Collaborative Research Centre 1199: Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition. I have published articles on various intersectional topics including spatial imaginations, naturalism, postmodernism, 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 was published. My current research project investigates archipelagic literary dynamics in American imperial discourses between 1880 and 1945.

My research interests include:

  • Imaginations and representations of space
  • Mobility and borderedness
  • Film, game, and horror studies
  • Survivalism and apocalypticism
