About Me

I am a Walter Benjamin Postdoctoral Fellow and Akademische Rätin at the University of Bielefeld, Germany. I hold a PhD in Comparative History 1500–2000 from the Central European University (Budapest/Vienna). My work focuses on the recent history of Eastern and Southeastern Europe in a global context. Departing from and building on my earlier interests in intellectual history and memory politics, I have been exploring how the history of globalizing Eastern Europe might be written as a herstory.
