    Christian (Chrise) Schuetz earned a bachelor's degree in American Studies from University of Bayreuth, a master's degree in American Literature from Fu Jen Catholic University, and a master's degree in Germanic Languages and Literatures from Washington University in St. Louis.

    He is particularly interested in how German writing authors engage with concepts of shame and processes of resistance. He is exploring how non-dominant discourses are represented in literary texts and how these texts negotiate gender, sexuality, race, and class within the complex political and cultural circumstances of advanced capitalism. Furthermore, Chrise is interested in the cultural transfer between Germany and the United States with an emphasis on the reception, adaptation, transformation, and intellectual history of Marxist ideas in America. In his free time, Chrise enjoys cooking, gardening, and traveling, among other less pastoral diversions.
