Biography

Lisa Cerami received her BA in German, English and Women's Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and MA and PhD in German from Princeton University. Her dissertation explored the concomitant rise of mysticism, and critical poetics in German modernism around the turn of the 20th century, which grew into another research project examining medievalism as an aesthetic and political phenomenon in the 19th and 20th centuries. Dr. Cerami directed the German program at Nazareth College until 2017 while also serving on the steering committee for the Women and Gender Studies major. She has taught courses on Medieval literature and culture, Jewish-German cultural history, 18th-21st century German literature, critical theory, feminist theory, and other topics. Dr. Cerami has most recently been engaged with various translation projects, including Tim Seitz's book Design Thinking And the New Spirit of Capitalism which will be published by Palgrave in 2020.
