"As a specialist in modern European history, I'm fascinated with the connection between politics and culture, especially under authoritarian regimes. My work focuses on the transnational impact of the transformation of military culture in the interwar era and compares these developments in Germany and Turkey in the ‘30s. In my teaching, I try to alert the students to the importance of comparative analysis in history without losing touch with specific regional historical experiences."

"I have always been fascinated with the way culture and social organization affect our personal experience of the world. How do the ideas, social arrangements, and structures of power that we happen to have grown up with affect our sense of who we are and what's important? In my research and writing, I try to examine and render visible the contingent relationships between these factors and their significance for people's everyday lives. These were some of the themes I explored in my book, Imagining the Course of Life, which looks at how people's ideas about human development are connected to cultural constructions of self and personhood."

"Questions of the power to speak, on a variety of levels, greatly interest me. As a teacher of the Spanish language, I try to provide not only the necessary grammatical skills for interpersonal communication but also a contextual understanding of a vibrant, living language. By teaching a foreign language, I can provide students both with a knowledge of those unlike themselves and the power to speak to, understand and access areas of knowledge unavailable to monolinguals."

"I am interested in the intersections of modernity, story-telling, media and realism. My research 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. I have recently become increasingly interested in questions constructions of realism in various media, as well as the manner in which cultural critics of the Weimar Republic understood 'realism' with regard to highly mechanical modes of representation such as photography and film. My sources often creatively pass between categories of fiction and documentary as well as mix media and genres. I am also interested in Austrian culture (especially Vienna around 1900), film studies and film history."

"Throughout my career, I have been interested in people's attempts to radically transform their societies, why those attempts sometimes succeed, and what impact participating in such movements has on the participants."
