Professor of German with courtesy appointments in English and History, Modern Languages
I joined the Carnegie Mellon faculty in August of 1993. From then until the present I have been involved in teaching in the University's German program, mostly at the third- and fourth-year levels. I have also enjoyed teaching Elementary German. I have courtesy appointments in the departments of English and History, and some of my courses, such as "History of German Film" and "Nazi and Resistance Culture", have been cross-listed in those departments. I have enjoyed the rich interdisciplinarity of Carnegie Mellon, particularly the relationship between my own college, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the College of Fine Arts. I am the major advisor for students interested in majoring in German but am also happy to advise students with any German-related interests.
