Domenic DeSocio, Ph.D., is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of German Studies at Vassar College. His research interests include the history of gender and sexuality, queer aesthetics and theory, modernist German and Austrian literature, and Weimar Germany. He has published on a variety of topics ranging from the figure of the New Woman in 1930s German novels to 1920s queer literary culture and queer temporality and friendship. A particular interest is bringing the German-language context to bear on American queer theoretical debates. In his current book project, The Times of Their Lives: Queer and Female Modernism, 1910–34, he analyzes how the rhythms of erotic desires mold time and how time inflects sexuality by looking at the modernism of women and queers: Robert Musil, Annemarie Schwarzenbach, Klaus Mann, Siegfried Kracauer, and Marieluise Fleißer.
