Fields of interest:
- contemporary German culture
- memory studies
- museum studies
- race and ethnicity
I am interested in the relations between collective memory, media and the public sphere. My work has focused on Holocaust memorialization and the representation of ethnic and religious difference in contemporary Germany, using ethnography as well as discourse analysis.
My research has additionally raised questions on the intersection of nationalism and pluralism. I have studied the Circumcision Debate in Germany and Israelis in Berlin.
My current research focuses on philosemitism in contemporary Germany.
