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.
On 14 May, I am chairing a panel on "Literary Celebrity and Political Persona," featuring Kirsty Gunn, P David Marshall, and Rachel Potter - do join us at The Oxford Centre for Life-Writing at Wolfson College for this exciting event!
In March, together with Philip Bullock, and in collaboration with OCLW, TORCH, and the "Writing 1900" network, I organised a day conference on "Transnational Lives and Communities".
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.
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).
My guest-edited special issue on "Literary Celebrity and Politics" has been published in the "Forum" section of Celebrity Studies 8.1.
