Research Interests: Austrian/Austrian-Jewish literature; 20th century literature.
I was interested in Georgetown’s German program primarily because of the strong focus on pedagogy. The program here seemed to fit, since my background is one that has always focused on preparing for a future in the classroom. I am also very pleased to actively take part in the ongoing efforts to refine the curriculum, and am very excited to present a recent contribution to the curriculum at the 2007 AATG conference in San Antonio. This opportunity precisely demonstrates the graduate student’s ability to engage the curriculum and become part of the pedagogical community.
I was also equally drawn to the accomplished faculty at Georgetown. Having the opportunity to learn from this prestigious group of scholars is a privilege. Thanks to the faculty, the classroom environment is very challenging and has enabled me to learn and use a new level of academic language, both in English and in German.
