The University of Texas at Arlington
I am working on topics related to philanthropy, transnational history and intercultural transfer. I recently finished a book on philanthropy in German, American and Canadian cities from the 1830s to the 1930s as well as a study of financing higher education in Germany from 1800 to the 1960s. I am very much interested in any discussion of intercultural transfer.

I earned my PhD from the University of Leipzig in 1998.

I have authored and co-authored 8 books, 6 edited volumes, 27 articles in books, and 22 articles in journals. Among these publications are: Germany and the Americas: Culture, Politics, and History 3 vols,; Traveling between Worlds: German-American Encounters (with Ruth Gross); and Philanthropy, Patronage, and Civil Society: Experiences from Germany, Great Britain, the United States and Canada.
