My doctoral thesis investigates Franz Kafka’s place within and contribution to the discourse on children and childhood around the turn of the twentieth century. 

Apart from Modernism and its cultural history, I am especially interested in theories of the novel, literary nonfiction, and literary criticism. I occasionally practise the latter, too, working as a freelance journalist in Berlin.
