Current Projects:

  • I’ve been invited to deliver a lecture at the Ebernburg on May 19, 2019, and my text will be published in an upcoming Ebernburg Heft together with the contribution of my colleague, Dr. Astrid von Schlachta, whose lecture I attended in October 2018.
  • My current book translation deals with a small twentieth-century religious community in central Germany and their resistance to the Nazi regime. Stay tuned for more details!
  • I’m also working on primary sources for an addition to the German Historical Institute’s German History in Documents and Images project (see below).
  • An increasingly large part of my workload involves editing non-native English texts. One of the most interesting projects—soon to be published—is about medieval climate history, and I edited a monograph late last year about the Holocaust in Lithuania.

Social media copywriting:

  • I contributed several months of posts to Fortress Press’s social media project, “The Road to the Reformation,” in anticipation of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s ninety five theses in October 2017. The daily posts are still available on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

There are also several publicly accessible book reviews that I have written:
