Personal profile


I am associate professor in English literature. I joined Lund University in September 2022. My research gauges the transformative potential of literature at the intersection of aesthetics and power. My research project called the “Visceral Novel Reader” develops a diachronic model for the transformative potential of novels for readers’ embodied repertoire. This work grows out of my previous research in the medical humanities. My next project investigates the transformative possibilities of ecopoetry from the perspective of environmental humanities.
