I am a Modern linguist (German) with a background in inter-disciplinary Gender Studies and English Literature and Creative Writing. My research focuses on the interrelation between sexual sciences and European (especially German-language and British) literature and visual culture in the late 19th and early 20th century. My most recent publications include the co-edited volume Biological Discourses: The Language of Science and Literature Around 1900 (2017).

I am based in the English Department and at the Centre for Medical History. I am also a member of the Wellcome Trust-funded Rethinking Sexology project. I co-convene the Medical History and Humanities seminar series


Key interests:

  • Gender, transgender and sexuality studies;
  • Queer and literary theory;
  • Medical humanities;
  • Life writing, diary and autobiography;
  • Film studies (especially films circulated beyond the commercial movie theater);
  • Human-Animal studies.
