Karen Hannel's research interests primarily revolve around the question of how the fine, performing and literary arts can promote justice and peace. She writes and speaks frequently on how the Irish Great War experience was recorded in Irish literature and art during the war and interwar years. Another area of research includes analyzing how the invasion and colonization of the Americas impacted indigenous populations and how, consequently, dominant society imagined native peoples in popular culture. Dr. Hannel's service to the community is centered on promoting the voice and well-being of young people who identify as LGBTQIA and the elderly. In her spare time, Dr. Hannel is an avid photographer and gardener.
