Christina Gerhardt, Assistant Professor of German at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, will be returning to the University of California, Berkeley, this time as a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of European Studies, and to Harvard University’s Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, also as Visiting Scholar, during the 2017–18 academic year.

Both appointments support her new book project 1968 and West German Cinema.

Professor Gerhardt is the author of Critique of Violence: Screening the Red Army Faction (2018); the co-editor of two volumes 1968 and Global Cinema (Wayne State UP, 2018) and Celluloid Revolt: German Screen Cultures and the Long Sixties (Camden House, 2018); and the guest editor of 1968 and West German Cinema, a special issue of The Sixties 10 (2017).

The Institute of European Studies at UC Berkeley seeks to enrich the United States’ understanding of Europe—its people, developments and challenges—through the generation and dissemination of distinguished scholarship. Professor Gerhardt taught at UC Berkeley in the Department of German from 2000 to 2006.

The Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies was founded in 1969 at Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences to promote the interdisciplinary understanding of European history, politics, economy and societies. Professor Gerhardt held a previous appointment as Visiting Scholar at Harvard University in 2007.
