Assistant Professor in Modern Languages-German
Ph.D., University of Cincinnati, 2010
"I am interested in the intersections of modernity, story-telling, media and realism. My dissertation focuses on film adaptations from Weimar Germany (1919-1933), paying particular attention to the manner in which these narratives draw attention to the act of story-telling as much as they communicate the story itself."
