Biography

Nathan arrived in the department in 2007 as a Max Kade fellow. Since then he has sharpened his research interests, which include nineteenth-century literature—in particular the Romantics—narrative theory, and German social history. After passing his Ph.D exams in December 2010, he has begun writing his dissertation, “Accommodating the Nation: Hospitality and State-Belonging in Nineteenth-Century German Literature.” The project aims to expose a link between literary representations of the guest-host encounter and emergent discourses of citizenship in the long nineteenth century. In the last two years Nathan conducted research and continued writing his dissertation as a DAAD scholarship holder and published an essay in Focus on German Studies. This academic year he will continue to teach as he completes his dissertation and hits the job market.
