Representations of childhood in the Third Reich
Areas of expertise My doctoral thesis and first book focused on the ways German authors have used the child's perspective to write about the Third Reich. I have subsequently worked on representations of childhood in the former GDR, and on the way the former socialist state is remembered in unified Germany, particularly in literature and film. I am currently interested in what the 'Brexit' vote says specifically about Anglo-German relations.
