I am a Senior Research and Teaching Associate in English Literature at the University of Zurich and a Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing at Wolfson College, University of Oxford.
Together with Philip Bullock, and in collaboration with OCLW, TORCH, and the "Writing 1900" network, I am organising a day conference on "Transnational Lives and Communities". Do join us on 17 March at Wolfson College, Oxford!
On 4 November, I organised an OCLW/TORCH half-day colloquium exploring the relationship between life-writing and female celebrity. Selected podcasts from the event are available here.
On 27 May, I co-organised an OCLW/TORCH colloquium on "The Lives of Houses". Selected podcasts from the event are available here.
My guest-edited special issue on "Literary Celebrity and Politics" has been published in the "Forum" section of Celebrity Studies 8.1.
Together with Joanna Neilly, I am guest-editing a special issue on "The Author in the Popular Imagination" for Forum for Modern Language Studies (forthcoming in July 2018).
