Piia Posti is senior lecturer in comparative literature in the field of postcolonial studies. She received her PhD in 2005 from Stockholm University. Posti’s thesis discusses landscape, visuality, and exile in the fiction of Australian writer Gerald Murnane. She has previously worked at the Department of English, Stockholm University.


Piia Posti teaches literary history (Non-European and Postcolonial literature), children’s literature, and advance level courses in comparative literature and postcolonial studies.


Posti's research interests include postmodern and postcolonial theory and fiction, intermediality, and popular culture. Current research develops some of the issues in the thesis but from a Swedish perspective, as she studies Swedish travelogues on Australia.
