I am an associate professor at the Institute of the Study of Culture at the University of Southern Denmark. I currently work on women and trauma in fantastic film and television. My research is on the fantastic, emotions, and gender, and I combine biocultural theory and cognitive theory with a feminist approach. My most recent publication is Mastering Fear: Women, Emotions, and Contemporary Horror (Bloomsbury Academic, 2018), which analyses fiction horror as play with negative emotions. Another publication is Women of Ice and Fire: Gender, Game of Thrones, and Multiple Media Engagements (Bloomsbury, 2016, edited with Anne Gjelsvik). I also co-edited special journal issue Identity and the Fantastic in Penny Dreadful (2017) for Refractory: A journal of entertainment media 28, 2017.
