Biography

I currently work as Teaching Fellow in Norwegian at the Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL, and as Editorial Assistant for Norvik Press Ltd, UCL. I completed my  PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UCL in February 2011. My thesis, Nordic Italies examines representations of Italy in Nordic Literatures written between the 1830s and the 1910s. I also hold an MA in Comparative Literature and a BA in Scandinavian Studies with Management Studies, both from UCL.

In 2011 I worked as a postdoc fellow (Knowledge Transfer Associate) for UCL Advances (the UCL Centre for Entrepreneurship and Business Interaction), examining the challenges faced by small publishing companies specialised in the Humanities and exploring new potential ways of cooperation between small publishing companies like Norvik Press and the higher education sector. 

Research Summary

My current research interests include representations of Italy in Nordic Literatures, nineteenth-century Norwegian literature, the cultural mobility of Thorvaldsen’s sculptures through print culture, and the reception of the Norwegian constitution in European literature. I have published a number of academic articles on this topics in peer-reviewed books and journals and co-edited three books: Lyset kommer fra Sør, co-edited with Giuliano D'Amico (Gyldendal, 2011); Love and Modernity, co-edited with C.Claire Thomson (Norvik Press, 2013); Nordic Publishing and Book History, co-edited with Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen (Norvik Press, 2013).
