She has published two books on Rajzel Zychlinsky in Germany, her doctoral thesis, “Also das Alphabet vergessen? Die jiddische Dichterin Rajzel Zychlinski (Tectum 2000) and a bilingual edition of Zychlinsky’s poetry, Gottes blinde Augen (Oberbaum 1997). Her current book project, “An American in Berlin: Dorothy Thompson and her Central European Friends in Exile,” employs new theoretical approaches to intellectual biography and exile literature and focuses on the topography of exile and networks formed by German and American writers and intellectuals in the 1930s and 1940s.
