I received my PhD from McGill University in June 2017 after completing my dissertation, Out of Line: Print and Materiality in the West German Protest Movement. At present I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of German at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, where I will be teaching courses in German language as well as an upper-level interdisciplinary seminar titled: “Protest: West Germany, 1968.” My research interests include theories of media, materiality, performativity, protest and visual culture. I am an avid radio/podcast listener and enjoy the great outdoors where and when I can.
