CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS:
My research engages interdisciplinary approaches to literature and media, the relationship of aesthetics and politics, “photographic” texts, literary and other media theories, and film. Published articles on W.G. Sebald, Marcel Beyer, Peter Henisch, and Alexander Kluge are part of a book project that examines the use of photographic images and allusions to photography in German and Austrian fiction after World War II. A separate project engages Alexander Kluge’s work between and across various media platforms (text, film, television, internet).
