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, Austrian author Elfriede Jelinek and have published many articles and chapters on her work as well as one of the first monographs on her oeuvre. My recent work has focused on issues concerning literary and cultural protest and resistance against the extreme right in present-day Austria.
