    Juana Torralbo has studied at the University of Córdoba, the University of Marburg, and the University of Missouri.

    She is fascinated by new forms of literary expression as emergent literatures that not only challenge the concept of German literature but also expand the understanding of national identity. She is particularly interested in researching how scholars, philosophers, and ordinary people have approached rebuilding Jewish identity after the שׁוֹאָה.
