I am a literary and cultural studies scholar, a specialist in film and gender and a passionate tea drinker with Northern-German charm.
I am currently holding an independent project position at the University of Bremen, Germany, where I investigate the representation of science, medicine and
birth in literary and cultural artefacts of the long eighteenth century. I have given numerous talks all over the world and have published nationally and internationally on topics ranging from
Shakespeare on screen, literature and science to Canadian short stories to cyborgs and gender. My teaching record includes but is not limited to science and the media, graphic
literature, the epistolary novel, popular Shakespeare, Gothic fiction as well as introductory classes to Anglophone literature and culture.
