Biography

I joined the department of German and Russian Studies at Binghamton University in September 2014 after completing my Ph.D. at Cornell University in May of the same year. My book—Biological Modernism: The New Human in Weimar Culture—looks at the literature, photography, and philosophical anthropology of the Weimar Republic, showing how figures such as Alfred Döblin, Ernst Jünger, and Helmuth Plessner drew on discourses and tropes associated with living nature in order to redefine the human being for a modern, technological age. I have written on Alfred Döblin, Albert Renger-Patzsch, and the science fiction of East Germany, among other topics, and in the near future I plan to expand my forays into the New Vision photography of the 1920s, German language science fiction, and Philosophical Anthropology. Speaking broadly, my research is interested in the various ways in which popular genres or visual practices, for example, probe their own historical conditions and aesthetic circumstances in various interdisciplinary ways.
