I received my master’s degrees in “Comparative Studies in English and American Language, Literature and Culture” and “Philosophy” from the Heinrich-Heine-University Duesseldorf in 2017. I also hold a master’s degree in psychology from the University of Hagen. Since 2016, I am part of the Department of Modern English Literature at the HHU as a junior lecturer.
My research interests lie in the fields of film adaption studies; screenwriting and creative writing; poststructuralism; metafiction; intertextuality; intermediality; genre theory; narrative theory; and identity theory. My research focuses, in particular, on the identity-related psychological and philosophical processes in literature, film and writing.
I teach BA courses in literary studies dealing in particular with poststructuralist and intertextual approaches to analyzing film adaption and the creative writing process. In addition to these more theoretical, lecture-based introductions, I also offer a variety of practical, hands-on seminars, tutorials and workshops dedicated to creative writing and personality development.
