Juliane Schicker

  • Assistant Professor of German, German and Russian


I grew up in East Germany (when it was still the German Democratic Republic) and earned a teaching certification for Secondary Education (1. Staatsexamen) for German and English from the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Germany). After that, I spent 18 months teaching German to students at Texas Tech University, while also getting a Master in German and a Minor in Linguistics. I enjoyed English-speaking academia and teaching college-age students and decided to get my PhD at the Pennsylvania State University in 2015 with my dissertation "The Concert Hall as Heterotopia: Sounds and Sights of Resistance in the Leipzig Gewandhaus 1970-1989." From then on, I kept spending my time with questions of identity, musical space, the artistic expression of the Self and the Other, the connection between literature, music, and society as well as the cultural past of fin-de-siècle Vienna and East Germany. Outside of academia, I enjoy the making of, and listening to, music in all its forms and variations. I also love being outside (with our dog Layla aka "Ma'am") especially when the sun is shining and temperatures are above freezing.
