Key Research Interests and Expertise

I have published three books, on female adolescence in American literature, American Autobiography, and representations of Anne Frank in American literature.  

My research and teaching interests therefore focus on the following areas: representations of adolescence, youth and ageing, with a special focus on gender; American autobiography; narrative voice; the Holocaust in American literature and culture; contemporary American fiction. In future research and teaching I plan to extend my focus on the relationship between age and identity by working on representations of ageing in America, examining middle and old age.
