Curriculum Vitae (283.97 KB)

Originally from Zwickau, Germany, I came to the United States to obtain a Ph.D. degree. My research interests include medieval and early modern German and Yiddish literature and cultural transfers within a German-Jewish context. I am currently working on a book project concerning monsters in Old Yiddish literature. 

I have published articles on pre-modern German and Yiddish literature and translations in Arthuriana, Ashkenaz, Daphnis, Euphorion, The German Quarterly, PaRDeS, and Speculum (forthcoming) as well as the books “The Knight Without Boundaries: Yiddish and German Arthurian Wigalois Adaptations,” published by Brill in 2021, and “He Should Have Listened to His Wife: The Construction of Women’s Roles in German and Yiddish Pre-modern Wigalois Adaptations,” published by De Gruyter in 2020.

My recent publications include German Quarterly 96.2 (2023): “Premodern German Studies,” guest co-edited with CJ Jones; and Medieval and Early Modern Jewish Romance (Arc Humanities Press, 2023), co-edited with Caroline Gruenbaum.
