About Me

My research includes explorations in the fields of Germanistik (German and Austrian literature since the eighteenth-century) and of Comparative and Modern Jewish Literatures. Its innovation lies in interdisciplinary and intertextual thought around different mediums of representation that confront the dilemmas inherent in verbal language. This research approach integrates literary and memory studies, musicological, aesthetic, and philosophical inquiry, post-structural and critical theory. My book "Musical Biographies" demonstrates how for authors such as Thomas Mann, G?nter Grass, Ingeborg Bachmann and Thomas Bernhard, music is not only tool of representation, but becomes a medium that powerfully attests to the dilemmas of handling traumatic experience.
