Petra Dierkes-Thrun's research and teaching interests include the European and transatlantic fin de siecle and modernism (including literature, the visual arts, opera, dance, and film); feminist and queer theory; LGBTQ literary and cultural studies; and literary theory. She received her PhD in English and Cultural and Critical Studies from the University of Pittsburgh, PA (2003), and Erstes Staatsexamen degrees in English, Theology, and German from the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Germany (1995, 1996). Dierkes-Thrun's first book, Salome's Modernity: Oscar Wilde and the Aesthetics of Transgression, was published by The University of Michigan Press in Spring 2011. Other publications include articles on Arthur Symons and Stephane Mallarme, Richard Strauss, George Bernard Shaw, and most recently, Victoria Cross (forthcoming). Dierkes-Thrun also co-edits The Latchkey: Journal of New Woman Studies, an open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly online journal dedicated to the figure of the New Woman in fin de siecle and modernist society and culture. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, singing, traveling, and the great outdoors.
