After completing bachelor’s degrees in German, political science, and international studies, Meghan spent a semester abroad as an intern in the political-economic section of the U.S. Consulate in Hamburg, Germany. Upon returning to the United States, she began a master’s program in German at the University of Florida. The topic of her master’s thesis was Turkish-German cinema, in which she explored elements of the Freudian uncanny arising in selected films from the 1970s to 2011. In Florida, she taught various beginner level German language classes in face-to-face, hybrid, and online environments. She graduated with a master’s degree in German in 2012, and joined Georgetown’s German department that same year.
Meghan is particularly interested in contemporary culture, critical theory, and conceptualizations of migration, technology, and travel. She is excited to continue her studies at Georgetown, and is grateful for both the opportunity to work with the excellent faculty here, and to explore her research interests while gaining pedagogical training.
