Biography

I joined Oregon State University in 2008 after a one-year visiting appointment at Montana State University. I hold a Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin, a M.A. from the University of Florida, and two BA equivalent degrees in English (Otto Friedrich Universität Bamberg, Germany) and in German (Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich, Germany). At OSU I am Associate Professor in the School of Language, Culture, and Society.

Film is my passion. I am the author of East German Cinema: DEFA and Film History (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) and the co-editor (with Sean Allan) of Re-imagining DEFA. East German Cinema in its National and Transnational Context (Berghahn, 2015). My essays about German film and language pedagogy have appeared in journals and edited volumes. See a full bibliography by clicking the tab on the right.

I serve as director on the board of the Oregon Cartoon Project and am responsible for the organization's publications in digital and print forms.

At OSU I have developed the curriculum of the very first online major in German in North America (perhaps even world-wide).
