"I am interested in the intersections of modernity, story-telling, media and realism. My research focuses on film adaptations from Weimar Germany (1919-1933), paying particular attention to the manner in which these narratives draw attention to the act of story-telling as much as they communicate the story itself. I have recently become increasingly interested in questions constructions of realism in various media, as well as the manner in which cultural critics of the Weimar Republic understood 'realism' with regard to highly mechanical modes of representation such as photography and film. My sources often creatively pass between categories of fiction and documentary as well as mix media and genres. I am also interested in Austrian culture (especially Vienna around 1900), film studies and film history."
