My current research project is titled "Utopographies - The Poiesis of Space in Early Modern Romania" and deals with the literary construction of social counter-spaces in the paradigmatic genre of spatial descriptions, utopia. Particular attention is payd on the literary strategies of spatiality and the question of how fictional space is presented in relation to contemporary architectural theory: How does space relate to social structure, and how does language create a three-dimensional structure throughout language?
Further research interestes are:
