Lecturer of German
I received my Ph.D. in German Literature with a certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2018. Broadly speaking, my research interests focus on 20th century German and Austrian literature and culture. My first project traces Joseph Roth’s criticism of the increases in bureaucracy and policing he witnessed from 1919 to his death in 1939 to show how these measures impacted marginalized communities, especially Jews, ethnic minorities, and refugees. Additionally, I am interested in critical feminist pedagogy, the intersection of language and literature in the classroom, and how digital tools impact language learning.
