Lea Greenberg

Graduate Student

Lea Greenberg earned her B.A. in German Studies with a Concentration in Russian, Central, and East European Studies at Grinnell College in 2014. As an undergraduate, she studied abroad in Vienna and worked as an intern at the International Fellowship of Reconciliation – Austria. Following graduation, she worked as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at the Georg-Büchner-Gymnasium in Berlin. During her time as a Fulbrighter, she also occasionally volunteered at the American Jewish Committee Berlin office.
In her graduate studies, Lea is focused on pursuing German-Jewish studies, particularly Jewish identity in Central Europe and Yiddish literature. She is also interested more broadly in the lands of the former Habsburg Empire and issues of nationalism. When not reading about these regions of Europe, Lea enjoys traveling to them, particularly to Slovenia to be with her mother’s side of the family. Lea also enjoys collaging, throwing dinner parties with friends, taking on creative projects around the house, and baking.
