Originally from Austria, Luca got his BA in English at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA. In 2020, he published a co-authored paper in Feminist German Studies titled "The Language of Flowers and the (Re)productive Female Body in Hedwig Dohm’s Werde, die Du bist!" Before coming to CDG, he completed community service at a "Notschlafstelle" for adult drug users in Innsbruck, AUT. The past two summers, Luca served as the graduate assistant for the Duke in Berlin summer program. He is working mostly on postwar Austrian literature and more broadly interested in the twentieth century, gender and queer theory, and architecture and spatiality. He also enjoys walking, hiking, and singing.
