Michael Sandberg

Michael Sandberg is a graduate student in the German Literature and Culture program. He joined the department in 2017 after receiving his B.A. in Philosophy and German Studies from Vassar College in 2015. He is primarily interested in the interactions between old and new forms of media (“remediation”) in the early 20th century and beyond. This includes visual culture (predominantly photography and film), the newspaper, and other new technologies that shift perceptions of space, “place” and time. Other interests include archive theory, architecture, and eco-criticism. He has also worked as a freelance translator and is currently managing co-editor of the journal TRANSIT: A Journal of Travel, Migration, and Multiculturalism in the German-speaking World.
