    Research Interests

    In my research I seek to understand the dynamics underlying the relation between identity and community or identity in community in cultural representations. I am particularly interested in the ways in which literary and media genres such as the historical novel, the short story, life writing, movies, and musicals depict the developing, shaping, and transformation of individual and national identities and negotiate and question social and cultural practices. Further fields of interest include adaptation and appropriation, intermediality, liminality, and cultural memory.
