Gerstner

Dr. Alexandra Gerstner, Director

Dr. Gerstner studied history, philosophy and German literature at the Freie Universität Berlin, and obtained a PhD in history in 2007 with a thesis on ‘New Adel’ and the use of aristocratic concepts by intellectuals in the early 20th century. In her research, she focuses on interdisciplinary approaches to German intellectual history in the 19th and 20th century, such as the history of concepts and the investigation of lieux de mémoire. Her work also includes the study of intellectual networks and the history of racism and antisemitism. Her teaching interests extend to contemporary German culture and literature as well as teaching German as foreign language.

Before coming to the University of Toronto, Dr. Gerstner taught German Language and Literature at Wroclaw University (Poland, 2001-2002), and from 2007-2010 in Yerevan (Armenia) at the State Linguistic University and at the French University. In 2007, she joined the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), first as director of the Armenian office in Yerevan and from 2010 at the DAAD head office in Bonn. In addition to her teaching duties at the U of T, she also serves as Director of the DAAD Information Centre for Canada which promotes study and research in Germany and provides information about funding opportunities for such activities.
