Associate Professor

I teach early modern European literary and cultural history, methodologies of contextualisation and various topics related to my research. My research interests include the French Enlightenment, eighteenth-century sensibility culture, Orientalism in early modern French, Spanish and English literature and drama, and the relationship between literature and politics. Since 2021, I have been working on the Anthropocene and the planetary in a literary historiographical perspective. In the spring of 2023, I have started a major interdisciplinary research and book project on the natural-cultural history of agriculture 1700 - 2023, which so far includes researchers from ethnology, anthropology, literary studies, cultural geography, art history, and The Green Museum.
