Research Interests

Prof. Dr. A.

In terms of periods she has worked extensively on Shakespeare-adaptations of the 20th and 21st century and on the British novel from the 18th century to the present. Her fields of research include postcolonial and gender studies, knowledge formation, consciousness studies and anoetics.
