Main Areas of ResearchGerman Literary Studies (Modern German literature) and Media Studies: Research on German radio history and the culture of listening, particularly on German radio plays and sound arts

Message/Self-Introduction One of the first impressions of foreigners in Tokyo is the “noise” of the city that the Japanese surely do not perceive as such. Which factors determine cultural differences in auditory perceptions? Questions like this are part of my research in which I analyze the relations between ‘culture’ and ‘listening’ from different media-theoretical perspectives, such as Media Aesthetics, Media History, and Media Anthropology.
