Founders Hall 403
Professor of German
As a comparatist, I am intrigued by the question how literature addresses space (national, regional, cultural space) and what the tensions look like between minority literatures and major literary discourses.
I have taught at the University of California at Berkeley and at the Freie Universität Berlin, and -- as visiting professor -- at Brandeis University and M.I.T. I am currently the faculty director of Wellesley's Berlin Program.
