I specialise in representations of otherness in the social and cultural history of early modern European art.

I currently explore themes of the human-animal divide in representations of otherness. This touches on subjects such as foreignness, religion, gender, and class. I analyse pictorial prints (woodcuts and engravings) and text in sixteenth-century German chronicles, ‘wonder books’, travel tales, fables, printed maps, broadsheets, pamphlets, and interactive prints with flaps and spinning dials.
