Doro Wiese, PhD, is a researcher at Düsseldorf University andundefinedUtrecht University. In her multifaceted research, she investigates how aesthetics is a manner of drawing people into an effective relation with the lacunae of knowledges and histories. In her first monograph,undefinedThe Powers of the False (Northwestern UP 2014), she determines how intermediality (photography, painting, music) in selected US-American and Australian novels allows readers to relate to histories that have been repressed or silenced by trauma and taboo. In her second book,undefinedF-Faust (Textem 2018), she ask how and to what effect different media affect the human body. Her current research project titled Side by Side: Reading Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Literature investigates which epistemological, formal, and thematic distinctions and connections are present in post-war fiction on Native North America on both sides of the Atlantic. This study helps to develop cross-cultural and cross-epistemological research fields in literary, historical, and cultural studies.
