Postdoctoral fellow (co-funded by the Belgian FSR and the Marie Curie Actions) University of Louvain, Belgium

My doctoral thesis analysed comics from several cultural spheres (Anglophone, Francophone, Germanic and Finnish) in order to deduce possible characteristics of the graphic novel on a transcultural level. My current project aims at highlighting the connections between monsters from Romanticism and monstrous heroes in comics.  Publications on comics include articles in the International Journal of Comic Art and chapters in edited volumes, with the latest being Graphic History: Essays on Graphic Novels and/ as History (edited by Richard Iadonisi).
