Research Interests

Veronika’s research interests lie broadly in late twentieth and twenty first century women’s writing, with a particular focus on European and (Franco)Canadian literatures and cultures, as well as postcolonial, feminist and gender studies. Her doctoral project explores alternative conceptualisations of travel in experimental contemporary women’s writing through a feminist Deleuzian/Augéan lense.
