A brief introduction


My name is Carol Anne Costabile-Heming, and I am a Professor of German at the University of North Texas. Since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, I’ve been fascinated with the city of Berlin, its ever changing cityscape, and the ways that the city wrangles doing justice to its history while simultaneously embracing the future. In my capacity as Assistant Editor and contributor to this blog, I hope to entice you to explore the ways that memory, urban studies, and area studies intersect, and pique your curiosity about culture and urban studies in Germany.
