Hunter Bivens is assistant professor in the Literature Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 2006. He has presented widely on postwar German literature, film, and culture and published on the work of Anna Seghers, Brigitte Reimann, and Volker Braun.
