Darrah Lustig, Ph.D. Candidate
In 2007 I graduated from the University of Vermont with degrees in German and European Studies and a minor in Spanish. Shortly thereafter, I began teaching English in partnership with the Austrian-American Educational Commission, living and working in Wolfsberg, Carinthia, Austria.
I returned to the United States in 2010 to pursue a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature at Dartmouth College with a special interest in Austrian literature and contemporary Holocaust Studies. In my Master’s essay, I explored the tensions between Ruth Klüger’s roles as author, witness and translator of her own survivor experience in her memoirs weiter leben and Still Alive.
Upon completion of my graduate degree, I returned to Wolfsberg, Austria in the summer of 2011 where I worked as an English language trainer at a private language institution before joining the Georgetown community in the fall of 2012. I am very excited to begin my studies here and look forward to uncovering new interests and approaches to understanding German literature and culture.
