Graduate Students in American Studies and European American Studies

Welcome to the Grad Student Forum! This online platform, hosted by the Regensburg European American Forum (REAF), has been created to establish a scholarly network of past and present Regensburg M.A. students. Thus it serves as a resource for new and current students to inform themselves about and stay in touch with the research and professional experience (e.g., internships) of their cohort as well as previous cohorts. Likewise, Regensburg American Studies alumni are enabled to stay informed about current cohorts and recent research.

Feel free to use this network to your scholarly advantage and browse through the entries that offer current bio notes as well as contact information and research interests. In this spirit: Stay connected and keep the research going and growing!
