I have been Associate Professor of English at Linnaeus University since 2009. I am currently at work on a research project on representations of manliness in early modern English satire. The project is funded by LNU and the Swedish Research Council and runs until 2019.


During my years at LNU I have taught lots of courses from undergraduate to master's level, including a course on Shakespeare and his time as well as various survey courses on literary history. I have also supervised a large number of BA and master's essays.

From 2016 until 2019, I will mainly focus on research.


My research focuses on literature and culture in the 16th and 17th centuries. Among my specific interests are early modern satire, representations of masculinity, dream narratives and urban culture. I have published in among others English and SEL: Studies in English Literature 1500 – 1800 on authors such as Christopher Marlowe and Thomas Nashe.
