I am a historian who researches cross-border environments in contemporary Europe (esp. Poland, Germany, and France).
Writer and Translator
I am the author of numerous publications and translate between German, French, and English.
European borders as
In some sense, borders have made “Europe.” Perhaps nowhere is this more true than along Germany’s borders with France and Poland. The Rhine and Oder-Neisse river systems have functioned as markers of the post-1945 settlement, spaces of integration, and sources of shared problems. My research aims to examine how citizens along these borders related to one another in everyday life.
