Research Interests

My research interests include German and Comparative literature from the eighteenth century to the present with a particular emphasis on twentieth century literature and aesthetics. I have worked on authors such as Kafka, R. Walser, Eichendorff and Beckett. My current research project examines the literary representations of betrayal in a comparative study from the Middle Ages to the present.
