Juliane Schicker

  • Assistant Professor of German, German and Russian

Introduction

I received 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." I also earned a teaching certification for Secondary Education (1. Staatsexamen) from the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Germany) and a Master in German from the Texas Tech University with a Minor in Linguistics. My academic interests include 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.
