I work as an associate professor in didactics at the department for nordic and media studies and teach mostly in the field of teacher education. My background is an M.A. in Comparative Literature, Scandinavian Studies, and Latin American Studies from the Goethe-University in Frankfurt am Main.
I wrote my doctoral dissertation in literary studies focussing on Norwegian picturebooks and comics from and ecocritical perspective. The dissertation is entitled "Narrating Environmental Citizenship: Norwegian picturebooks and comics in the Anthropocene". The main research questions in my phd project were how multimodal texts for young audiences narrate different concepts of environmental citizenship and how visual and verbal narrative strategies interplay. Employing econarratology, I investigated formal narrative structures that focus on the relationships between humans and the world in which they live.
