  • About

    Ariana Orozco is a PhD candidate in German Studies. She is spending the 2011-2012 academic year at the Freie Universität in Berlin as the department’s exchange student. Previous to coming to Michigan, she spent a year in Johanngeorgenstadt, Germany (a small town that merits a brief mention in one of Florian Illies' novels). She received her BA in Comparative Literature from Williams College.

    Ariana's interests include nostalgia, popular culture (including Pop Literatur and new feminisms), and the role of material culture and the museum in post-1989 (East) German literature. She is an active member of the Turkish-German Studies Group.
