Rebecca Rimac

Rebecca joined the Yale German Department in 2021 as a graduate student. Previously, she completed her BA in German Studies and Philosophy and her MA in German Studies at the University of Cologne with a thesis on dramatic writing and reading scenes in the second half of the 18th century. Her focus is on literature around 1800, media theory, and literary history. At Yale, she seeks to broaden her previous focus on German literature and, in particular, to pay closer attention to historical literary developments within Europe.
