Personal profile

Research areas

My research investigates the relationship between literature and work and, more specifically, the cultural significance of work-related issues like unemployment, precarization and automation. My work has appeared in journals like symplokēK&KPassageContemporary Literature and in several anthologies. I am the culture editor of the Danish journal Eftertryk Magasin. I obtained my PhD from the University of Southern Denmark with a dissertation about the unemployment novel and the shifting emotional politics of unemployment from the 1930s to today.
