Current (and Recent) Projects:

  • The lecture at the Ebernburg I delivered on May 19, 2019, has been published in an Ebernburg Heft together with the contribution of my colleague, Dr. Astrid von Schlachta, whose lecture I attended in October 2018.
  • My book translation about a small twentieth-century religious community in central Germany and their resistance to the Nazi regime should be published this year. Stay tuned for more details!
  • My work translating primary sources for the German Historical Institute’s German History in Documents and Images project (see below) is ongoing.
  • For the past two years, I’ve been coordinating translations for the Bavarian Studies in History and Culture, an online portal of the Commission for Bavarian History at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
  • An increasingly large part of my workload involves editing non-native English texts. One of the most interesting projects—about medieval climate history—was published this spring, and I was disappointed that the related panel I was to be a part of at the book fair in Leipzig was cancelled.
