Dr. Kirsten Krick-Aigner’s teaching interests include German language, German-language literature and cultural studies, and humanities. Her research focuses on 20th- and 21st-century Austrian and German literature and cultural studies; Austrian and German fairy tales, folktales and literary tales (19th, 20th and 21st century); women’s studies, including 20th- and 21st-century German-speaking women’s poetry and prose; cultural studies, including 20th- and 21st-century dramatic arts and art history (Expressionism, post-WWII and contemporary); film studies, including German Expressionist film, “New German Cinema” film, and contemporary Austrian and German film; and literary translation of contemporary German-language texts. She earned her B.S. degree in German from Georgetown University, and her M.A. and Ph.D. in German literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She enjoys the opportunity to build lifelong relationships with students that Wofford provides. Away from Wofford, she likes cooking, traveling, gardening and writing.
