  • About

    Anne Berg was trained in modern German and European history. Growing out of her dissertation work, her book project, Urban Legend: Truth, Travesty and Film in Nazi Hamburg illustrates how debates over film and public leisure were essential in the making and breaking of the Nazi city.  In a second project, Anne examines the politics of waste and recycling in the Third Reich and Nazi occupied Europe. Anne’s wider research and teaching interests include urban history, film studies, the history of the welfare state, and history of food, waste, and war.
