Jasmin Krakenberg received her Ph.D. in Germanics at UW. Her interests are informed by literary Modernism, critical theory, and text and image relations. In Cinema and Media Studies, her interest ranges from film theory and historiography to documentary, performance art, and avant-garde cinema. Her dissertation addresses some of the encounters between the visual arts (portraiture, landscape, still life) and films by German filmmakers associated with the Berlin Schule, most notably Christian Petzold, Thomas Arslan, Angela Schanelec, Christoph Hochhäusler, and Maren Ade, among others. For spring quarter, she developed a new course on contemporary German culture, focusing on the art of protest.

Prior to attending UW, she engaged in a variety of experiental education in Germany ranging from coordinating education programs around the documenta exhibitions of contemporary art in Kassel. She also frequently teaches German language and culture at various international summer university programs in Germany (Hochschule Fulda, Freie Universität Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin).
