Updated: 7 January 2021

Working as a postdoctoral fellow at Leipzig University’s Collaborative Research Centre 1199: "Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition", I have recently published The West and the Word: Imagining, Formatting, and Ordering the American West in Nineteenth-Century Cultural Discourse (2020).

In 2016, I received my master's degree from the Institute for American Studies at Leipzig University with a paper titled "American Spaces: Renegotiations of Cultural Geographies and Counter-Drafts to Spatial Master Narratives of the American West in Jack London's Short Stories."

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
