Research

research overview

  • 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; and Islam in Europe. Her interdisciplinary work is informed by feminist cultural studies frameworks and critical race studies. She incorporates analysis of news media, literature, film, performance, and graphic journalism into her work. Her current book project, Decolonizing Hospitality, examines the ways in which refugee art and culture constructs new forms of hospitality, welcome and sanctuary in the face of extreme precarity and racism. An additional co-authored manuscript in progress (with Maria Stehle) examines precarity, race, gender, and intimacy in contemporary European cinema.
