Before moving to Chicago in 2017, I studied Political Science. Growing up in Germany, I have always been interested in Germany's history and how it is portrayed in literature and media. I took my B.A. and my M.A. in Political Science from the University of Leipzig, and I also studied at the Technical University in Dresden, Germany and at the Universidade Nova in Lisbon, Portugal. Currently, my research interests are focused on the history of exclusion, in particular in Antiziganism, its relation to Antisemitism and its corresponding representation in literature. Furthermore, I am also interested in psychoanalysis, in notions of identity, and in questions of coming to the terms with the German past, and how this affects new German pop culture as in the rebranding of Germany as the hotbed for “rave culture.”
