Stephan Jaeger



Dr. Stephan Jaeger is head of German and Slavic Studies. He researches on narratives, representations, and memory of war (especially World War One, World War Two, and the Holocaust) in history museums as well as in German and European literature, film and historiography. He asks how moral/legal definitions of war and human rights relate to war’s representation and remembrance, and how war’s representation links past, present, and future. His teaching also includes other human rights-related topics such as German colonialism and genocide, as well as German identity and refugees.
