If you like to learn more about what drives me to the library and makes my academic world go round, this is the place to take a closer look. Below I have collected a few highlights to read, watch, or listen to - while I work on more to come in the next few months!
Posthumanism and the Posthuman
Chances and Challenges in German and European Literature and Culture
Together with my colleagues Anngeret Märten (King's) and Robert Craig (University of Bamberg) I organised a two day conference on posthumanism and the posthuman.
It took place on 23 & 24 March 2023 at the Institute of Languages, Cultures and Societies (ILCS) in London. We had generous support from ILCS, KCL, DAAD and AGS.

Alptraum(a) - Alps, Summits and Borderlands in German speaking Culture
This conference, organised by Andrea Capovilla (IMLR, London) and Rich McClelland (Bristol) took place in April 2021.
What would have been an amazing conference has, due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, turned into a great online event and you can watch the talks on Youtube. Below is the video recording of the panel I was on, alongside David Anderson (Queen Mary University of London) and Peter Arnds (Trinity College Dublin).
