Assistant Professor of German
Ph.D., Yale University
Gabriela’s research falls under the general umbrella of German literature, culture, and intellectual history from the late 18th century to the present, with an emphasis on theories of narrativity and visuality, film, translation as intercultural communication, as well as the interplay between science and culture, and between politics and culture. She has published articles on Fritz Lang, Claude Lanzmann, and Sophie von La Roche, and she is preparing a book manuscript for publication which outlines the influence of physiognomics on narrative techniques and character delineation practices in modern German novels from the late 1770s to the end of the Weimar Republic. At Clemson she has been teaching all levels of German, as well as courses in the Honors College and in the World Cinema program. In 2016, she received the CAAH Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and returns to the classroom every semester with renewed dedication and enthusiasm.
