Johannes von Moltke is a Professor of German Studies and Screen Arts & Cultures at the University of Michigan. He teaches and researches the history of German cinema, with a particular interest in our shifting understanding of film and more recent media. His latest book, The Curious Humanist, explores the encounter between German and American intellectual traditions through the figure of Siegfried Kracauer, the film theorist and critic who fled the Nazis in 1933 and spent the last quarter century of his life in New York, where he wrote several important books about film. Most recently, Johannes has been thinking about how the media (and media theorists) have changed our notions of what it means to be human.
