Personlig profil

Forskningsområde

Forskningsfelt:


Det meste af forskningen indgår i et overordnet projekt, der bidrager til inddragelsen af folklore og folkloristik i studiet af engelsk/europæisk litteratur- og kulturhistorie fra senmiddelalderen og renæssanceperioden. Forskningen fokuserer således på traditionsbårne kulturformer såsom folkeviser, eventyr. legender og dramatiske optrin og ceremonier, der studeres både som alternative litteratur- og dramaformer med en kendetegnende retorik/poetik/dramaturgi, og i deres relationer til periodens kultur i øvrigt. Parallelt hertil laves der forsøg med anvendelse af folkloristikkens indsigter (f.eks. om mundtlig overlevering) i studiet af litterære tekster (f.eks. Shakespeares skuespil).

Siden 2007 er forskningsfeltet udvidet til også at omfatte betragtninger over hvorvidt middelalderens og almuetraditionens mundtlighed m.m. er ved af genopstå i de digitale medier, ved afslutningen af den mellemliggende 'Gutenberg Parenthesis'..
