Research Overview

My research interests encompass contemporary German-speaking culture in a number of forms - literary, filmic, and more broadly socio-political. I'm very interested in the Nobel-prize-winning author Elfriede Jelinek and continue to publish articles and chapters on her work. My recent work and publications have focused on issues concerning literary and cultural protest, or resistance against the extreme right in present-day Austria.
