About Me

I have been working on my Dissertation about Milblogs by US soldiers in the Iraq War since early 2006. The first years I was financed by a scholarship from the Landesgraduiertenförderung Baden-Würrtemberg.

I am currently working as a lecturer and student ocunsellor at the American Studies department of the University of Tübingen  (in German as a Wissenschaftliche Angestellte). The job consists of teaching cultural studies and literature classes and running a student counselling service for students of the department.

I am interested in popular culture and politics in the broadest sense. This has taken  me to a lot of places, from romantic comedies to postcolonial writing to health care reform. My current focus lies on New Media studies and War studies and I am combining  both in my dissertation.

…. und einen angenehm sonnigen Tag!
Ich schreibe eine Hausarbeit über Military Blogs und habe eine Frage: Wissen Sie eventuell, woher ich eine Spiegelung des Blogs “My War” von Buzzel bekommen könnte?
Leider ist der Bog selbst ja zerschossen, sprich, viele Einträge fehlen und es ist nur noch ein totes Gerüst.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Markus Rödl
