INTERDISCIPLINARY WORK (German+Natural Science, German + Social Science, German+Business, German+Arts, German+Premed), GERMAN STUDIES, GENDER STUDIES, EMOTION STUDIES
My research focuses on German Literature, the nineteenth century, and discourses on melancholy and emotion in general. I am also working my way into digital humanities.
I am available to work with students and advisors in other departments on interdisciplinary projects.
As German undergraduate advisor, I am particularly eager to work with all students who want to conduct research or do a capstone project related to an internship while taking part in our Junior Year in Munich program. Among students who will be participating in the JYM program in 2014-15 are:
*a Theater/German major whose project involves methods of performance training in contemporary German theater
*a biochemistry/German major working on the practice of complementary alternative medicine in Germany
*a chemistry/German major focusing on the comparison of laboratory culture in Germany and the United States.
