Annika Orich received her PhD in German with a Designated Emphasis in Film from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2017. Her research and teaching interests encompass 20th- and 21st-century German literature, film, and culture, and center on intersections between science and art, debates on multiculturalism and migration, discourses on memory and identity, and questions about humor. She obtained degrees from the University of Calgary as well as the European University Viadrina, and also taught German languages classes at the Freie Universität Berlin International Summer University. Annika is a member of the Communications Committee and Board of the Canadian Association of University Teachers of German and worked as an editorial assistant for Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies. Her current book project on reproductive imaginations in German culture studies how reproductive processes in biology and the arts evoke similar cultural anxieties.
