Research Interests


Contribution to the Research Group

For my work as a fellow I can contribute a wide variety of theoretical background. Furthermore, I can provide another perspective on South America and on Otherness, since I just started my dissertation project, which focuses on the early works of William S. Burroughs and deals with transcending fixed concepts like nationality.
