Associate Professor and Graduate Director     


I teach a variety of courses in contemporary German history with interests in the history of sexuality and visual culture. My book, Life Among the Ruins: Cityscape and Sexuality in Cold War Berlin (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011), explores the rebirth of the city’s various subcultures in the aftermath of World War II. I have written about same-sex sexuality in post-1945 Germany and am co-editing a book with Matt Cook (Birkbeck) entitled Queer Cities, Queer Cultures: Europe Since 1945 (Continuum, 2013). Current projects include “Hate 2.0: Combating Right-Wing Extremism in the Age of Social Technology” on the role and potential of social media as a form of digital activism and “Photography and the Sexual Revolution” which explores how people used the camera to articulate  their sense of self and desire in the era before Aids.
