The supernatural has been a fertile ground for the projection of fears and desires for many cultures across time and space. In the coming years, I will focus on this process, the process of Othering, in mythology and folklore, especially in the Indian and Germanic areas.

Next to that, I work with Indo-European comparative mythology, Gnostic and Chinese sources, Saxon folklore, and the combination of structuralism and cognitive theory.
