Job Title:
Lecturer in German Studies

I teach German language, literature and culture, as well as translation from German into English.

I also contribute towards the modules ML1COMP (What is Comparative Literature?), ML1GEC (Greats of European Cinema), and ML1TRANS (Thinking Translation: History and Theory). To assist all students in reaching their potential (and having fun doing so!), I am committed to adopting inclusive pedagogy and developing diverse curricula.

Research Interests

I am interested in the role that cultural products (literature, film, architectural landmarks) and the intertextual links between them play in the legitimation and subversion of inequalities - in particular, ethno-racial inequalities - in 20th and 21st-century Germany. I am currently completing my first monograph on eclectic intertextuality in the work of Turkish German author Yadé Kara and developing a second project on scriptural intertextuality. In addition, I am also working on a new project on colonial-era landmarks in contemporary German culture.
