Johanna Schuster-Craig earned her Ph.D. in German and Fem inst Studies at Duke University. She is an Assistant Professor of German Studies in the Department of Romance and Classical Studies and a Core-Faculty of the Program of Global Studies in Arts and Humanities (GSAH). Her research focuses on integration politics in Germany, both from the top-down (government policies and programs) and the bottom-up (social work projects and artist responses). She is also interested in race/racism/whiteness in Germany after 1989, ethnographic fieldwork methods, and the far-right (PEGIDA/AfD) responses to refugees.
