Visiting Assistant Professor of German

I study German books and the history of the ideas that have shaped them. The focus of my research is on literary realism in the nineteenth and twentieth century, theories of literary exchange and influence (between authors, between nations), as well as the relationship between literature and politics. But in fact everything for me comes down to the art of reading slowly enough to share in the beauty and power of literary thought.
