Prof. Dr. Anne Koenen
Professor Emeritus for American Literature



Having grown up in a small German town on the borders to France and Luxembourg, I have lived in Saarbrücken, Frankfurt on the Main, Berkeley, and currently Leipzig. I love cats, gardening, and literature about adventurous expeditions into cold, remote regions; for myself, I prefer the Southwest of France.

The Twin Peaks was a student-produced newsletter for the Institute of American Studies, which appeared every semester from 1995 to 2006. It featured articles and interviews related to American Studies as well as academic essays, short stories, poetry, reviews in English.

Civic Engagement


American Studies Leipzig receives regular requests for our scholars and staff to participate in continuing education programs for many different sectors of society, including teachers, journalists, members of the business community, officers and soldiers, and government officials. We see it as one of our key responsibilities to participate in these crucial education programs. Such civic engagement is a central way for American Studies to be an active citizen in the broader community.

Public Dialogue

American Studies Leipzig seeks to be an active participant in the public dialogue about the nature of American life, and about the role of the United States in German, European, and World Affairs.
