Main Areas of ResearchIntercultural Germanistik, Rhetoric, History of Modern Literature and Modern Literary Theories, Cultural Studies
Self-Introduction I am conducting analyses of the works of Musil, Hoffmannsthal, Kafka, and Junger. I also study the authors, particularly Jewish authors, who escaped from Nazi Germany, from the perspective of cultural comparison. I am especially interested lately in how Japanese culture was received and recognized in Germany and other European countries around the turn of the 20th century.
