She writes about German and transnational histories of sexuality, visual culture, and social media and memory. Currently, she is overseeing a multi-year, multi-platform transnational project on social media and networks of hate between Germany, Canada, and the US that analyzes how historical memory is manipulated by everyday actors and organizations to cultivate mistrust around the role and legacy of democratic pluralism, migration, gender equality and LGBTQI* rights in western nations. She is co-founder and curator of the New Fascism Syllabus (www.NewFascismSyllabus.com) and the German Studies Collaboratory (www.GermanStudiesCollaboratory.org). Her writing has been published in Der Tagesspiegel, The Washington Post, the Guardian, the National Post, the Globe and Mail, and The Conversation.
