André Schuetze

André Schuetze is a Professor of Practice in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at Tulane University in New Orleans. Originally from Berlin, he studied at the Humboldt University and the University of California, Los Angeles. He teaches courses on Berlin, East German culture and society, the Holocaust and film and media. He recently created a course on Austrian and Swiss film and literature in which students analyzed issues of identity and the emergence of modernity in other German-speaking countries. His research centers on film, media, urban spaces and architecture. His article “Uncanny Berlin” recently appeared in the volume Cultural Topographies of the New Berlin.

Currently André is putting together a new study abroad program for the Department of Germanics at UW. In 2020 he received a grant from the UW Global Innovation Fund to research and implement this program. Summer in Berlin, City of the Past and Future: Film, Media and Diversity will provide students with an immersive experience as they enjoy real-world applications of their language skills and through interactive projects that allow for hands-on investigations of the city’s many museums, theaters and other cultural and historical sites. With coursework that concentrates on the broader historical and social framework of the city as well as an offering focusing on diversity,  André looks forward to introducing students to his hometown.
