Research Interests

Her research focuses on pre-modern Japanese literature, with a focus on waka poetry and poetic theory (karon, kagaku). In her doctoral dissertation Poetics and Feminity (Hamburg, 2001) she has examined the reception of Heian period Japanese women poets in poetics of the 10th to the 15th century, several articles treat intertextual features and rhetorical elements of waka poetry. Her recent research covers the poetic theory of the late Edo period and has resulted in a book on theoretical approaches to language and the evolution of waka rhetoric (München, 2010).
2015/16 she was fellow at the interdisciplinary Marsilius Kolleg at Heidelberg University where she has developed the concept for and has been working on an interactive digital map of poetic places (utamakura/meisho) in Japan.
Further research interests are performance theory in Japanese cultural studies (www.bunron.org, 2014) and the early reception of Japanese literature in the West, especially in German speaking countries
