Research and Original Creative Work
Program of Research and/or Focus of Original Creative Work
The focus of my recent work has been completion of two book manuscripts. One examines the life, career, and untimely death of the German playwright August von Kotzebue (1761-1819). Oxford University Press has already expressed interest in publishing this project. The second book project examines the debate in Germany surrounding the publication of Arthur Drews' "The Christ Myth," which denied the historicity of Jesus. I am co-writing this book with James Carleton Paget (Cambridge University).
