research & teaching

I teach German at the University of Oxford, at The Queen’s College, where I cover literature of the modern period (1770 to the present), film and translation. I also teach on the MSt in Film Aesthetics. 

My first book, Reading Colour: George, Rilke, Kandinsky, Lasker-Schüler (Peter Lang, 2019), looked at colour in German modernist poetry. It was awarded the Institute of German Studies/Peter Lang Early Career Researcher Prize. I am currently co-editing a collection of essays on imagining the beliefs of others in German literature, coming out in summer 2023.

I have recently spoken about the concrete poet and Benedictine monk Dom Sylvester Houédard on BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking. For an introduction to his life and work you can also read my review of a show at Richard Saltoun gallery here.
