German history, culture, language, and literature.
I like to teach German History and Culture with a book or story that is enjoyable to read for undergraduate students, even students in high school. My latest book “To Cope and to Prevail: Growing up in Germany in 1930-50’s” ISBN 9781477285664 is an example for my endeavor. It addresses some of the misunderstandings about the German people during this time, which we find in most history books written by none Germans. .

I am a PhD researcher in the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film at Queen Mary, University of London, where I am funded by the Wellcome Trust on a grant administered by the Centre for the History of the Emotions. My doctoral thesis traces an affective map of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century motherhood in peninsular Spain. Adopting a thematic approach based on a number of emotional concepts, it brings medical treatises, didactic literature, devotional texts, personal correspondence and records of pilgrimage sites into dialogue with contemporary scholarship on the history of emotions to reconstruct the emotional texture of motherhood in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. More broadly, my research interests span late medieval and early modern popular piety, Church history, hagiography, and theories of emotions.   96   Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE   /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:”Table Normal”; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:””; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:”Calibri”,sans-serif; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;}
