Research Summary

The general commitment of my research is the integration of literary and ideological analysis, inquiring how the ideological manifests itself in the literary material, and this with a focus on post-war literature in Dutch and other languages. Within this broad project I am particularly interested in affect/emotion, discourse, gender, genre, ideology, narratology, political economy, and (post-) Marxism.

My PhD, Between Desire and Restraint, focused on the representation of the body by male authors in the Dutch prose renewal of the sixties. This analysis was set against the background of contemporary assessments of the "roaring" sixties and the changes in capitalism.

Current research focuses on tendencies in contemporary fiction in relation to cultural and socio-economic changes, and on the cultural expression and socio-economic conditions of today's pervading sense of 'being stuck'. Theoretical inquiries revolve around the integration of affect, genre and ideology.
