Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My research centres on changing relations to the role of history and nonfiction in 1990s British literature.  Using examples such as Geoff Dyer, Andrew O'Hagan and Iain Sinclair I am looking at the ways in which authors in this period test the boundaries of private and public histories, and the present's relationship to the past and possible futures.

I received my BA and MA degrees in English Literature from Uppsala University, with dissertations on Alasdair Gray's Lanark and the works of Murial Spark respectively.  I have also studied media studies, Japanese, East Asian history, and, very briefly, naval architecture at the undergraduate level in Scotland.
