Description

Dedicated to highlighting currents of North American Studies in Germany.Also on spotify and itunes; and if you want more updates on the interviews and upcoming episodes check out our twitter/facebook/instagram! About the host/creator: I'm Verena Adamik, and I teach and research American Studies at the University of Potsdam. For my PhD project, I went to investigate the link between the United States' national narrative and utopianism. I am currently turning some of my findings into a book. Further research interest include dabbling in horror fiction and African American writing, specifically sf, horror, and literary responses to White supremacy. Because I miss seminars and lectures, I decided to just get scholars to spell their intellectual beans in this podcast.
