I am a cultural-intellectual historian of 20th century Europe and focus on the representation and collective memory of World War II and the Holocaust in Germany. I am interested in mass media representations of the events, especially on television, as well as their impact on postwar historiography and philosophy. In addition, I pursue projects concerned with the theory and practice of historiography, historical culture, media history, and comparative memory studies. I teach modern German history, the history of the Holocaust, historiography, and memory studies.

I am co-editor of the journal Memory Studies:
