Beverly Weber's research focuses on the intersections of race, gender, and migration in Germany and Europe; contemporary German literature and culture; Turkish-German culture; immigrant culture; and Islam in Europe. Her interdisciplinary work is informed by feminist cultural studies frameworks, and incorporates analysis of popular media, literature, and film. Her current book project draws on feminist and queer affect theory to examine the ongoing representations of refugee 'crises' and the ways in which notions of Europeanness exclude populations from the 'human'. And additional co-authored manuscript in progress (with Maria Stehle) examines precarity, race, gender, and intimacy in contemporary European cinema.
