Fields of interest
I'm interested in the representation of perpetration and perpetrators in documentaries on genocide and the ethical questions it raises. I have gathered a large (250+) constantly growing corpus of documentaries and examine the differences in perpetration/perpetrator representation across different genocides and across time while also looking at the perpetrator and victim groups (e.g. para/military, social, political, economic, gender) represented with an eye to non-representations as well.
My previous research focused on the poetry and poetics of the image in Paul Celan and André du Bouchet (both 20th century poets with Jewish roots). I have also written on the philosophical and intellectual history of the imagination in (primarily) the 18th century.
