Daniel wrote his PhD thesis (in German) on ‘Island(s) in the Archipelago’ of Caribbean literatures (2013), published in a revised and extended version as Insel(n) im Archipel. Zur Verwendung einer Raumfigur in den zeitgenössischen anglo-, franko- und hispanophonen Literaturen der Karibik (Paderborn: Fink 2017).
In this monograph Daniel focuses on the textual constitution of islands (nissopoiesis) or archipelagoes (archipelagopoiesis) and its respective poetics in novels, short-stories, and poems from contemporary anglo-, franco-, and hispanophone Caribbean literatures (1992-2012).
After seasoning his attention in Caribbean cultural theories Daniel investigates how desert islands, islands in relation, and archipelagic relations are textually constructed in select works of contemporary Caribbean writers in English, French, and Spanish.
He is the author of Theorising Literary Islands (2016) and editor of Didactics and the Modern Robinsonade (2018).
