Personal profile

Research areas

English version: With my PhD project I ask how engaging with literary works might transform understandings of political recognition. To this end, I analyze specific Danish and American novels, poetry and autobiographies dealing with racialization, disease and gender with the intention of describing how these particular works invoke and address political as well as literary recognition. In order to gain a broadly based perspective on the complexities of recognition, I also look into popular debates surrounding these particular literary works and carry out field work together with the organization Læs for Livet.
