I began my PhD-studies in comparative literature in 2014. My dissertation is based in literary historiography and aesthetics of reception, and concerns interactions between genre- and media systems in the 20th century. Focus lies on analyzing understandings of Graham Greene's œuvre i Great Britain, the US, France and Sweden; how and why they have been created and interact, and how they reflect wider processes in 20th century literature.

In the past I've studied ideology in contemporary American novels, the rhetoric of Swedish national romanticism, and functions of parody in the animated tv-show Futurama.

I'm an alumni of The School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell University. In the spring of 2019 I'm a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Reception Study, KU Leuven (https://receptionstudies.be)

I participate in the project Echo Chamber of Reading (https://www.komplitt.com), and am co-editor of The Geschlecht Complex: Categorial Translations of Gender, Genre and Ontology.
