PhD fellow

The working title of my PhD study is 'Scaffolds of the Self. Passions and Dissent in the Early Modern Martyr Drama'. In it, I revive Spanish, French, and German martyr dramas from the seventeenth century, reading them as haunting renderings of inner life while comparing them to developments in contemporary theory of art and feelings.

Supervisors: Christian Dahl (UCPH) and Sofie Kluge (University of Southern Denmark)


I am affiliated with Sofie Kluge's HISTORIES-project:,-d-,_assessing_the_role_of_aesthetics_in_the_historical_paradigm
