My research is strongly interdisciplinary oriented and covers different aspects of 20th century history

Main research interests & fields of expertise:

  • film history and cinema (esp. 1930s to 1950s)
  • Second World War, Nazi Germany, the Holocaust & its aftermath
  • postwar Europe: society & culture
  • gender & masculinity
  • critical military history: war, soldiers, the military as social institution
  • history of law and justice, esp. Nazi military courts, war crime and genocide tribunals
  • genocide and memory
  • 20th century (social and cultural) Austrian history

About me:

After studying history, political science and gender studies at the universities of Vienna and Bern I went on to work as a historical researcher and language teacher in Vienna for several years. I continued my studies in England and graduated with a PhD in Film History from the University of Portsmouth in January 2009. From 2009 until 2013 I held postdoctoral research & visiting fellowships at the University of Southampton, the German Historical Institute Washington, D.C., the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung (ZZF) Potsdam and the Forschungsstelle für Zeitgeschiche Hamburg, Germany.
