I am a scholar of modernist studies, particularly of the region of Central Europe and of the relationship between literature and architecture as a means of understanding modernism and modernity. My recent book, Ornament as Crisis: Architecutre, Design, and Modernity in Hermann Broch's "The Sleepwalkers", was published with Northwestern UP (2016). I have developed courses on German cultural history of the environment (German Environments) and modern architectural history of Germany. In addition to the teaching of the German language, I also teach topics, such as the Faust legend, pop literature, and performance.
