    Luisa Banki and I are currently finalizing our proposal for a “Special Session” called “The Written Image: Allegory as Reflection between Ornament and Sign.” We bring together scholars working on allegory at the intersection of literary and visual studies in the early modern period and in contemporary literature. So excited about this!

My interests include: early 20th century German and Austrian literature; Baroque literature and aesthetics; the reception of the Baroque in 20th century scholarship; the intersection of aesthetic and political theory, psychoanalysis.
