Andrea's dissertation is concerned with the everyday lives, subjectivites, and memory of queer Berliners in the decades after the Second World War. She is currently conducting research in Berlin.
Her interest in the politics of queer history is guided by larger questions of representation, identity, and recognition, particularly as they are negotiated in museums and exhibitions.
Andrea is a member of the 2013/14 Museum Studies cohort. She came to German Studies with a Master's degree in North American Studies and in History from the Freie Universität Berlin.
