My research deals with affect and participation in current (media) culture. I am specifically interested in two research areas:


The first is the affective communication and narration of illness (especially cancer) on social media platforms - and how established understandings of illness are being challenged by new types of narrative:

- Project leader of research project on young cancer patients' narratives on social media:

- Co-coordinator of the research unit "Health, Media and Narrative":


The second is cultural participation. Here I am particularly interested in what cultural participation is, how it is used and misused in different disciplines and fields of practice and how to develop participatory research methodologies.

- Co-editor of the journal Conjunctions: Transdisciplinary Journal of Cultural Participation 

- Member of the steering group of research network on cultural participation:
