Renata Fuchs is a lecturer of German in the Department of Germanic Languages and a research fellow with the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies at University of California, Los Angeles. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research areas include the Romantic era, contemporary German literature, German-Jewish literature, Holocaust studies, women’s studies, literary multilingualism and translation studies, and minority literatures. More broadly, she works on eighteenth- through twenty-first-century intellectual history, literature, philosophy, and culture and explores the relevance of German Romanticism. She has published and presented on women’s authorship in the context of letter writing and salons in late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries as well as on contemporary German literature thematizing such issues as, migration, alterity, hybridity, neo-nomadism, and depression. As the research fellow, she organizes and leads the German-Jewish Book Series. Her current project is of interdisciplinary nature and involves the fields of art, history, and literature and results in a collaborative effort of the UCLA Confucius Institute, Fowler Museum, Department of Germanic Languages, and Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies. Her role in the project entails translating and analyzing the autobiography of the German-Jewish photographer, Eva Sandberg Siao, and examining her, for the most part, uncatalogued photographs.
