Alice Kuzniar is Professor of German and Chair in Croatian Studies at the University of Waterloo. A scholar in cinema, literary and cultural theory, and women and gender studies, Professor Kuzniar has published extensively on topics ranging from German Romanticism to German film. Among her most recent monographs are Melancholia's Dog: Reflections on Our Animal Kinship (University of Chicago Press, 2006) and The Queer German Cinema (Stanford University Press, 2000). Her anthology Outing Goethe and His Age (Stanford University Press, 1996) has fundamentally changed how we look at the Age of Goethe and has become one of the founding texts of gay and lesbian studies within German scholarship.
