Abstract

I am a senior researcher in the Collaborative Research Center (SFB 1199) “Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition”. I teach courses in transnational history and transregional studies at the Institute for the Study of Culture and the Graduate School Global and Area Studies at Leipzig University. In 2014/15, I was a German Academic Exchange Service P.R.I.M.E. research fellow at the Centre canadien d’études allemandes et européennes at Université de Montréal, Canada.

My main areas of research include the social and cultural history of Germany, Europe and North America in the 19th and 20th centuries, entangled histories of the Cold War and post-socialist transformations, as well as the transnational history of the cultural economy.

I am currently writing my second book on the entrepreneurs and transnational connections of the entertainment industries in North America and Europe from the 1880s to the 1920s.
