Alexis Radisoglou's research interests are in the field of 20th-century and contemporary literature, film, and visual culture, with a particular focus on comparative, transcultural, and interdisciplinary forms of enquiry. Most of his work is concerned with the role of aesthetic production in negotiating the political, historical, and epistemological challenges of the contemporary condition of globality.
He is currently preparing for publication his first monograph, Keeping Time in Place: Political Modernism in Late Modernity, and is actively engaged in two further research projects titled, respectively, 'Post-Global Aesthetics' and 'Eurozone(s): Literary Imaginaries of Contemporary Europe'.
Dr Radisoglou received a BA in Modern Languages and Literatures from the University of Oxford, and a PhD in German and Comparative Literature from Columbia University, New York. Before coming to Durham, from 2016-2019 he was a Fellow of Lincoln College and a member of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages at the University of Oxford. Besides his activities in the field of German Studies, he is an inaugural member of the international research network 'Rethinking Modern Greek Studies in the 21st Century', initiated in 2019 by the Universities of Oxford and Amsterdam.
