For many years, my research focused on the narrated landscapes of Prince Maximilian of Wied (1782-1867), a German explorer and naturalist who traveled through the United States in 1832-34, accompanied by the Swiss painter Karl Bodmer (1809-1893). More recently, my research focuses on Germany's remembrance culture, with a special focus on Gunter Demnig's Stolpersteine (Stumbling Stones) project. Other research interests include community development along Highway 41; the Hispanization of the South; and clean and renewable sources of energy.
