Dr. Natalie Roxburgh

  • Lecturer for English, University of Hamburg
Natalie Roxburgh’s research explores economic and financial discourses in literary and cultural texts from the seventeenth century to the present in US and British contexts. In particular, she is interested in the way changes in political economy and public finance relate to new subjectivities and ways of engaging in private finance and in other facets of life. Besides her monograph Representing Public Credit (Routledge 2016), she has published widely on topics such as drugs and finance, political economy and aesthetics, and financial subjectivity. She is active in several networks, such as Critical Finance Studies and Money, Power and Print (which she helps to coordinate). Dr. Roxburgh is currently finishing a postdoctoral thesis on rethinking aesthetic disinterestedness in light of the development of nineteenth-century political economy. She teaches English in the Department of English and American Studies at the University of Hamburg. A CV and list of her publications can be found here.
