I am an assistant professor in American Studies/Anglophone Literatures and Cultures at the University of Bayreuth. My research focuses on queer and gender studies, the history of knowledge, and popular culture from the long nineteenth century until today (esp. novels, magazines, film, and television).

My publications include the monograph Women, Camp, and Popular Culture – Serious Excess (Palgrave, 2017), the co-edited collection Stimme, Kultur, Identität. Vokaler Ausdruck in der populären Musik der USA, 1900-1960 (transcript, 2015), and articles on a diverse range of topics from narrative strategies in Edith Wharton's fiction to queer affect in the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Currently I am working on my second monograph and leading the DFG-funded research project “The Economy and Epistemology of Gossip in 19th- and early 20th-Century US-American Literature and Culture” (2019–2022).

My teaching reflects my research interests and has focused on US American literature in the 19th and popular culture in the 20th and 21st century. I have laid additional emphasis on core issues of American Studies such as US American history between the colonial and the progressive period as well as literary and cultural theory. Beyond enabling my students to gain knowledge and information and learn about methodologies and concepts in my classroom, I strive to a) foster their critical thinking skills, b) improve their writing, reading, and research expertise, and c) expand on their competency for productive debate. Hence, I consider active and cooperative learning strategies to be invaluable tools. I also hope to share my enthusiasm for my class topics and the discipline of American studies at large.

If you are one of my (prospective) students, I encourage you to make use of my office hours!
