I defended my dissertation in German Studies at the University of Texas at Austin 1999. Since then I have been teaching at Ohio State University, Texas Tech University, and Texas State University--San Marcos. My revised and expanded doctoral thesis will be published by Boydell & Brewer in 2004. I presented numerous papers on minority issues, Austrian colonialism, German-Romanian literature, the Sudeten German-Czech conflict, and other topics at national and international conferences .
