Expertise
My main fields of research are British Literature, Australian and Canadian culture, Shakespeare adaptations, and film studies. I have recently developed a profound interest in the history of science and fictional representations of the natural sciences. In July 2013 the research team's proposal was accepted by the VW Funding Initiative Key Issues for Research and Society.
