I am excited to share the news that, starting in Fall 2016, I will be joining the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at San Francisco State University as Assistant Professor in Foreign Languages & Literatures.

It has been a great time in the Department of Germanics, where I had the opportunity to gather many experiences. Upon completing the MA program, I continued with the PhD and started working on my dissertation entitled “Moments of Rupture: Plotting, Character and Narration in Contemporary German Literature." After a research year in Berlin, I came back to UW and spent the last two years working as the Lead TA in the Department. The co-teaching of the GERM 304 theater course in spring will be an excellent way to conclude my teaching time at UW. After defending in the summer, I will move south to San Francisco. I am very thankful for the years in the Department of Germanics and I will surely miss the faculty, staff and my fellow graduate students!
