Background and activities
I'm an Associate Professor at the Department of Language and Literature. I hold a master and a PhD in English from the University of Copenhagen. In addition, I have studied at Monash University, Melbourne and been a visiting doctoral fellow at Wolfson College, University of Oxford.
I teach bachelor students in the course ENG1404. In addition, I am happy to supervise masters theses within the areas of society and culture of the English-speaking world, postcolonial studies, imperial history, and modern literature, in particular life writing and postcolonial literature.
