AboutI work as a lecturer in English literature and culture at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. I hold a PhD in English literature (published as The Pleasure of the Feminist Text: Reading Michèle Roberts and Angela Carter, Rodopi 2009) and have just finished my second book manuscript (The Laws of Excess: Law, Literature, and the Laws of Genre in Early Modern Drama, 2020).
My research and publications cover early modern culture and drama (especially revenge tragedy & tragicomedy), early modern piracy, law and literature, neo-Victorianism (and cultural appropriations of the long nineteenth century), (film) adaptation and questions of canonisation, as well as gender studies and questions of genre.
