Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of German Studies

Leslie Adelson’s teaching and research concentrate on German literature from 1945 to the present and additionally reflect interdisciplinary as well as transnational approaches to culture and history. Her focal interests include German literature of the post-war and post-socialist eras, emergent literatures often associated with minority and migrant populations (especially regarding Jews, Turks, and Black Germans), and postcolonial theories of difference and approximation.
