 Lecturer in German and Translation Studies


Teaching (undergraduate)

I teach courses on German literature and culture from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, as well as translation from German to English. I also contribute sessions to ML1CompLit and ML1Trans.


Areas of Interest

I’m interested in the intersections of literature and politics from the eighteenth century to the present.

From April 2020 I will be on research leave funded by the British Academy and Wolfson Foundations to work on a new three-year project, ‘Knowing the Nazis: Inside and Out.’ The project investigates the English-language publications and broadcasts of Germans and Austrians who fled to Britain and continued to oppose National Socialism from their position of exile.


Research groups / Centres

I am involved in the emerging Modern Languages Research Cluster on European Publishing.
