Esther Peeren is Hoogleraar Cultural Analysis. Ze is tevens vice-directeur van de Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA - http://asca.uva.nl) en vice-directeur van het Amsterdam Centre for Globalisation Studies (ACGS - http://acgs.uva.nl). Samen met Jeroen de Kloet is ze series editor van Palgrave Studies in Globalization, Culture and Society (https://www.palgrave.com/de/series/15109).

Esthers onderzoeksinteresses spitsen zich toe op vraagstukken over marginalisering en handelingsvrijheid, op de onderbelichte invloed van globalisering op het platteland en op de veranderende relaties tussen centrum en periferie (samen met Hanneke Stuit coordineert zij de ASCA onderzoeksgroep The Peripheries Project).

Vanaf september 2018 leidt Esther het door de ERC gefinancierde project "Imagining the Rural in a Globalizing World." In dit vergelijkende project onderzoekt ze, met een team van PhD en postdoc onderzoekers, de cruciale rol die culturele verbeeldingen van het platteland in literatuur, film en televisie spelen in het wel of niet zichtbaar maken van bepaalde aspecten van het hedendaagse plattelandsleven, hetgeen invloed heeft op hoe het platteland politiek gemobiliseerd kan worden. De vergelijking betreft het Verenigd Koninkrijk, de Verenigde Staten, Nederland, China en Zuid-Afrika.

Andere interessegebieden zijn populaire cultuur, moderne literatuur- en cultuurtheorie (met name Mikhail Bakhtin, poststructuralisme, cultural analysis, en gender studies), en Engelse en Amerikaanse literatuur, film en televisie van de 20e en 21e eeuw.

Recent publiceerde ze een artikel over de affectieve dimensie van politieke mobilisaties van het platteland in Landscape Research (2018), een bundel (geredigeerd met Robin Celikates, Jeroen de Kloet en Thomas Poell) over Global Cultures of Contestation (Palgrave, 2018), een bundel (geredigeerd met Hanneke Stuit en Astrid Van Weyenberg) getiteld Peripheral Visions in a Globalizing World (Brill, 2016) en bijdragen aan de open-access publicatie Symptoms of the Planetary Condition: A Critical Vocabulary (Meson Press, 2017).

Eerdere publicaties spitsen zich toe op spectraliteit; het gebruik van de metafoor van het spook of het spookachtige als theoretisch concept. Haar tweede monografie - The Spectral Metaphor: Living Ghosts and the Agency of Invisibility (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) - onderzoekt de relatie tussen spectraliteit, precariteit en agency in culturele representaties van gemarginaliseerde groepen die gezien worden als "spookachtig" (migranten, bedienden, mediums en vermiste personen). Met Maria del Pilar Blanco van de Universiteit van Oxford redigeerde ze de bundels Popular Ghosts: The Haunted Spaces of Everyday Culture (Continuum, 2010) en The Spectralities Reader (Bloomsbury, 2013). Ook publiceerde ze artikelen over spectraliteit in Critique: Studies in Contemporary Fiction en The Ashgate Research Companion to Paranormal Cultures.

Van 2013-2017 was Esther als Universitair Hoofddocent verbonden aan de opleidingen Mediastudies en Literary and Cultural Anlaysis, en van 2006-2012 was ze Universitair Docent bij de opleiding Literatuurwetenschap. Met haar collega Joost de Bloois schreef ze het handboek Kernthema's in de Literatuur- en Cultuurwetenschap (Boom Lemma, 2010).

Esther studeerde Engelse Taal en Letterkunde en Algemene Literatuurwetenschap aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. Daarna volgde zij, met een Talentenbeurs van de NUFFIC, een Master of Studies in Women's Studies aan de Universiteit van Oxford. In december 2005 promoveerde zij aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam op een proefschrift getiteld Bakhtin and Beyond: Identities as Intersubjectivities in Popular Culture, gepubliceerd als Intersubjectivities and Popular Culture: Bakhtin and Beyond (Stanford University Press, 2008).
