Biografi

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

Born and raised in Northern Germany, I attended the Scandinavian Studies program at the University of Hamburg before transferring to the Department of English at Uppsala University. I subsequently received my BA degree with a thesis on the ideological implications of Willa Cather’s One of Ours and my MA with a thesis on the re-configuration of the frontier myth in Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. In February 2013, I was admitted to the PhD program in American Literature.

 

I am now working toward a dissertation which examines the various representations of the literary figures of the civilian, soldier, and terrorist in American post-1980 literature. This dissertation will be a part of a larger collaborative research project titled “Fictions of Threat: Speculation, Security, and Surviving the Now” that brings together researchers in various fields of American studies at Uppsala University, the University of Witwatersrand, and the University of Sussex.
