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 the adaptations and transformations of Wigalois, a text describing the adventures of an Arthurian knight, across different languages (Yiddish and German) as well as across different media (manuscripts, prints, wall paintings, comics) from the 13th to the 21st centuries.
