Sabine Doran

Associate Professor, Comparative Literature / German
Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, Free University of Berlin, 2004

Sabine Doran specializes in twentieth-century German literature and culture, film and film theory, media studies, art history, and Jewish studies, and is the Director of the German Program. She pursued her doctoral studies at Stanford University (Visiting Researcher 1996-1999) and at the Free University of Berlin (Ph.D., 2004). Her work traces the relation between literature and the visual arts (film, painting, video, plastic art), in terms of the genetic and figural connections between aesthetics, politics, and history.

Professor Doran is the author of the forthcoming monograph The Culture of Yellow, or, The Visual Politics of Modernity (Bloomsbury, 2013), as well as numerous articles, including, most recently: "The Aesthetics of Postcolonial Cinema in Raoul Ruiz's Three Crowns of the Sailor" (Postcolonial Cinema, Routledge, 2012); "Writing van Gogh through Francis Bacon: Mayroecker's Non-Human Aesthetics" (Gegenwartsliteratur, 2011); and "Synaesthesia in European Film Theory" (European Film Theory, Routledge, 2009). She is currently working on a book on synaesthesia.

Professor Doran teaches courses on film theory, representing the Holocaust, world cinema, Berlin, world literature, as well as courses on German literature and culture.
