New York University
I am currently working on my dissertation in Modern European History at New York University. My project examines the rise of mass tourism in the German Democratic Republic during the 1970s. My fields of interest include postwar Europe with an emphasis on Germany and East/Central Europe, as well as the history and theory of travel and tourism.
