About me

Assistant professor of German since 2018

Fulbright Hildeman Fellow, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, 2017.

PhD in comparative literature, Södertörn University and Stockholm University, 2014.


Spring semester 2021:

Reading Across Literatures: Multilingualism, Translation
and Comparison
(AN, optional course within the Master's Programme in Literature)


My research interests include literary multilingualism, intermediality, German and Swedish postwar literature and exile literature.

In May 2014 I defended my dissertation Motståndets akustik. Språk och (o)ljud hos Peter Weiss 1946–1960 [The Acoustics of Resistance. Language and Noise in Peter Weiss 1946– 1960]. It investigates Peter Weiss's return to German as literary language.

Recent publications: 

Inscribed gestures: the vernacular-cosmopolitan dynamic of sign language in Michael Roes’s novel Die Laute in Textual Practice 2020.

The Aesthetics and Politics of Linguistic Borders: Multilingualism in Northern European Literature (Routledge 2019).

Publications are listed here.
