Robert C. Blanchard's picture

Born and raised in northwest Ohio, USA, I earned my BA in Education at Bowling Green State University in 2015. There my studies focused most heavily on secondary English education, but I also earned a minor in Communication, and decided that academically I was more interested in pursuing literary, pop, and American culture studies. While BGSU boasts graduate programs in all three fields, I wanted to pursue studies less specific to one of these fields and better oriented to my diverse interests. For me, the University of Leipzig is a perfect fit, as is the broader field of American Studies. My research interests include literature, music, television and film, intersections of race, ethnicity, class, and culture, literary criticism, and critical theory. (Obviously, I haven’t narrowed my research interests very much yet—I’m still new here!)
