Jeffrey Hertel

Jeff got his BA in German, History, and Psychology from Indiana University Bloomington, where he went on to complete an MA in European Studies with a focus on Germany, writing a thesis about how the concept of “movement” or Bewegung changed over the course of the “long nineteenth century.” During his MA studies, he spent six months at the Freie Universität Berlin, taking courses in history and doing research for his thesis at the Staatsbibliothek. His current research interests focus around the “long nineteenth century” and the idea of revolution (or more generally what one might call “radical” political and social theory) in conjunction with various literary expressions of such concepts. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys baking, traveling with his wife, Raine, and hiking.
