Scott Pincikowski received his M.A. from the University of Wisconsin and his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 2000. His research interests include medieval German culture and literature, comparative literature, gender and body studies, critical theory, and modern reception of the Middle Ages. Pincikowski specializes in representations of pain and suffering in the Middle Ages. His book, Bodies of Pain: Suffering in the Works of Hartmann von Aue, was published by Routledge in 2002. He also has a forthcoming book review for the Society for German Medieval Studies as well as a chapter for the upcoming Hartmann Companion by Camden House. Scott Pincikowski's current research focuses on the depiction of violence in twelfth-century German epics and Arthurian romances. As associate director for the Institute on the American Dream at Penn State Erie, he authored a successful Pennsylvania Humanities Council Humanities-and-the-Arts Initiative grant for the spring 2001 conference, Working for What? Winners and Losers in the American Dream.
