I am Assistant Professor of American Studies (Akademische Rätin) at the Institute for British and American Studies, University of Osnabrück. I have held research and teaching positions at the universities of Basel, Bern, Mannheim, and Bonn, and have been Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College and Georgetown University. I am the author of Writing Anthropologists, Sounding Primitives: The Poetry and Scholarship of Edward Sapir, Margaret Mead, and Ruth Benedict, which is forthcoming with University of Nebraska Press in spring 2021. My second book project sets out to present an American literary history of economic liberalism with a focus on the Gilded Age and the Neoliberal Age.
