My name is Anne von Petersdorff, I am a scholar, writer, filmmaker, and educator from Berlin, Germany.

I received my Ph.D. in German Studies and Digital Humanities from Michigan State University where I created my hybrid dissertation which consists of a feature-length, bi-autobiographical travel documentary, and a theoretical-historical exploration of film aesthetics.

My research interests include issues of representation, gender, human mobility and intersectionality. My professional path has been shaped by exploring the intersection of creative practice and research. I am an advocate for public facing, digital humanities and offer digital dissertation workshops in which I introduce students and faculty to tools and models that will help them to envision, plan, and execute their own digital research projects and explore ideas for building bridges between academia and the public sphere.

If you would like to get in touch, work, collaborate and learn with me, whether you’re down the street or across the ocean, feel free to send me an email. I’d love to hear from you!
