Emma Goehler

Graduate Student

Emma Goehler earned her B.A. in 2015 from the University of Chicago in Fundamentals: Issues and Texts with a minor in Germanic Studies. The "fundamental" issue she studied was suicide, but she also dabbled in the sometimes-related and generally more cheerful concepts of love and storytelling. As an undergraduate, she spent a short time in Leipzig on a German language acquisition grant and also began to learn Czech. While Emma retains many of her past interests, she currently spends more time thinking about questions of identity, narrative and memory in post-war Central Europe. In her free time, Emma enjoys various ways of going (swimming, biking, running, hiking, climbing) and beer.
