About

I am a historian of premodern german literature and culture. My current focus is on medieval concepts of aesthetics of production. Methodologically, my work draws largely on historical semantics and recent historical narratology. More generally, I am interested in the history of literary forms and forms of production, in the light of contemporary intellectual history on the one hand, and in relation to rhetorical, religious and social practices on the other. My research areas include:

· Current Book Project: The Poetics of Genesis-Reception and the Problem of Literary Creativity in the Middle Ages
· Anthropological Perspectives: Space, Image, Gift
· Telling and Counting (Zählen und sagen): The Interference of Numerical and Narrative Knowledge in the Middle Ages
