Dagmar Herzog appointed to the Graduate Center
Professor, Ph.D. Program in History
Daniel Rose Faculty Scholar
(effective Fall 2005)
Dagmar Herzog conducts transnational and comparative research on how religion and secularization have affected social and political developments in modern Europe. She is particularly attentive in her research to methodological innovations in critical source analysis and in gender and sexuality studies. Her two pioneering books, Intimacy and Exclusion: Religious Politics in Pre-Revolutionary Baden and Sex after Fascism: Memory and Morality in Twentieth-Century Germany, present fresh interpretations of problems in modern Germany. Her interest in the holocaust and sexual politics led to her editorial work on Sexuality and German Fascism, a special issue of the Journal of the History of Sexuality; Lessons and Legacies VII: The Holocaust in International Perspective (forthcoming); and Sexual Politics in Postwar Austria, a special issue of Contemporary Austrian Studies (forthcoming). She has also published in over twenty journals and edited volumes. Professor Herzog earned her B.A. at Duke University and her M.A. and Ph.D. at Brown University. She was a Mellon Faculty Fellow at Harvard and a member of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. She comes to The Graduate Center from Michigan State University.
