Andre Schütze first came to the US by way of Berlin, with lengthy stopovers in Los Angeles and New Orleans, and is very happy to have landed in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  He did his graduate degrees at Humboldt Universität and UCLA, focusing on twentieth-century and contemporary German and Austrian Studies, surveillance and utopia, and film studies.  He then moved on to New Orleans, and at Tulane University, he taught classes on film and city, DDR literature and culture, and transcultural German Studies.  At UW, he is currently developing classes on film and media and working on curriculum design for the language classes.   In 2022 he was excited to launch a new study abroad program, Summer in Berlin, in which students engage in hands-on explorations of topics such as everyday life in the DDR, Berlin as a global city, and issues of gender and sexuality in the past and present.
